The Children's Mercy South inpatient unit is a medical/surgical unit, providing care for minor surgery, general medical and patients with viral or bacterial infections.

 Common diagnoses include:

  • Bronchiolits
  • Asthma
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Gastro-esophageal reflux
  • Pneumonia
  • Failure to thrive
  • Hyperbilirubinemia
  • Tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy

We are a 50-bed unit, including a four-bed outpatient sleep lab. Four of our patient rooms are double occupancy to accommodate siblings. Four more of our rooms are negative flow isolation rooms to accommodate airborn illnesses.

Patients range in age from neonates to age 18.

We work with Hospitalists who are on the unit for 12-hour shifts and have 24-hour coverage. These physicians make rounds at least twice daily and work closely with the nursing staff.
