Hospital medicine staff
Our Hospital Medicine team provides 24/7 services at Children's Mercy Hospital in downtown Kansas City and at Children's Mercy Hospital Kansas in Overland Park, Kansas. On both campuses, hospitalists manage illnesses that affect any body system and require general pediatric inpatient care outside the PICU. Our team is comprised of board-certified pediatricians who work in a highly integrated fashion with the community physicians and families of those we care for. We are also actively involved in numerous quality, safety and advocacy initiatives to enhance care for our patients. We also supervise and teach medical students and pediatric, and family medicine residents during inpatient rotations. We are board-certified Pediatricians and clinical faculty affiliated with University of Missouri at Kansas City.
