The ROC is a referral only clinic which provides suctioning treatment for children 8 weeks to 23 months old with bronchiolitis. ROC is staffed by a licensed pediatric respiratory therapist. Bronchiolitis is a breathing tract infection that can cause infants to have labored breathing, trouble sleeping and trouble feeding, which can lead to dehydration.
After receiving a referral from your child’s primary care provider, you will receive a 7-day prescription for visiting ROC. You may visit as many times as necessary during that timeframe, but your insurance co-pay or visit deposit will be charged each visit. Please note, the patient should not eat 1 hour before arriving to the ROC.
The ROC clinic is located on the first floor of Children's Mercy East.
