At Children's Mercy, our critical-care medicine specialists and experienced pediatric nursing staff care for patients 24 hours per day in our 41-bed pediatric intensive-care unit.
Your child will be monitored continuously and our pediatric intensivists react immediately to changes, making appropriate adjustments in treatment, improving outcomes, and reducing patient length of stay.
Pediatric intensivists and neonatologists direct Children's Mercy Transport, one of the nation's leading specialty transport systems for critically-ill pediatric and neonatal patients.
