Families choose Children’s Mercy because of our extensive experience, knowledgeable and personal care providers, and innovative research that translates into results. Our outcomes—the statistics that track how kids do after surgery—are one of the best ways to show how relentlessly our doctors are working to improve the lives of kids with heart conditions.
The team at the Children's Mercy Ward Family Heart Center strives to provide the best possible pediatric heart-surgery outcomes for our patients. Listed below are our results compared to the national standard* for various procedures.
