Children’s Mercy is committed to providing updated information about COVID-19 that may impact the children in our community and current patients. Visit our dedicated section on COVID-19 for more information.
Children’s Mercy is implementing full visitor restrictions to keep you and your child safe:
No visitors, including sibling visitors
Parents/guardians are not considered visitors
Parents/guardians must be free of respiratory symptoms and fever to be in the hospital
In order to help keep our patients as safe as possible, we are working to reschedule some of our specialty clinic visits, non-urgent imaging procedures and elective surgeries. If your child’s appointment needs to be changed, our team will be reaching out to you directly. We appreciate your understanding as we work to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible from the spread of COVID-19.
Children's Mercy providers offer information about what to do if you think your child has COVID-19 and how to treat your child's symptoms if they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or you think they might have the virus.
We continue to provide around-the-clock, world-class care – care that your giving makes possible. Be a champion for families and our healthcare staff today by helping us respond to our areas of greatest need during this crisis.
Please note this is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. We are regularly updating this page with key information as we receive it, but we encourage you to refer to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a reliable source for the most updated information as it becomes available, in addition to updated guidance.
