Refer a patient to Home Care

Children's Mercy Home Care is the only full-service pediatric home-health agency in the region. Our team provides continuity of care following inpatient stays and often instead of hospitalization.

Home Care services are available for patients that reside within a 55 mile service area from our Riverside office. DME and pharmacy services may be available outside of the 55 mile service area. Please contact our office for questions regarding service territory.
