Why choose a top-ranked program
Children with significant kidney disease tend to be extremely complex patients, and centers that are ranked high have excellent patient outcomes. Children’s Mercy has a 100%
successful transplant rate and our dialysis program has one of the lowest infection rates in the country.
This level of expertise, along with our transition to adulthood program and our focus on family-centered care, make us stand out as a leader in pediatric kidney care.
