Children's Mercy offers a collaborative model of care for children with physical disabilities that interfere with normal functioning. Our team of diverse specialists provide early and intensive interventions to maximize a child's function and development.
Our mission is to improve and maintain quality of life for the more than 2,000 children and families we serve through inpatient care, outpatient clinics, day treatment and home care.
We work closely with families to develop individualized care that reflects current research and practice trends while incorporating family values and goals. We are committed to continuity in care and the wise utilization of health care resources.
We have six physiatrists on staff who are the only pediatric board-certified and fellowship-trained rehabilitation specialists in the region. Our team also includes two physician fellows, residents, four nurse practitioners, two social workers, a rehabilitation psychologist, a triage nurse/coordinator, and a research coordinator.
