At Children's Mercy, we know trust is everything. And you can trust we'll always do whatever it takes to protect the health of your child, especially now. Here are three things we want you to know as you ask yourself, "Is it OK to take my child to the doctor?"
Kids need care.
While some pediatric care may be deferred for a limited time, delays in care for children may result in lifelong health consequences. That’s why it’s so important that we begin seeing the children whose care had to be postponed.
We're preparing a safe environment for you.
We've taken safety measures to protect our patients, families and staff. Health screenings upon entrance, universal masking, visitor restrictions, social distancing, increased frequency of deep cleaning and more are all part of our commitment to you.
We're ready when you are.
We have been seeing patients from the comfort of their own home during COVID-19, and we'll continue to do that for patients where we can. But our in-person clinics are ramping back up and non-urgent surgeries and procedures are being scheduled. We're ready when you are.
