Wellbeing begins in the places where we live and work each day—our homes, schools and neighborhoods. That’s why Children’s Mercy is working to find new and innovative ways to improve the lives of children and families in the Kansas City area and throughout the many communities we serve.

Because we believe that every child deserves more. More ways to stay healthy. More life-changing research. And more solutions for everyday challenges. As a non-profit health care system, Children’s Mercy invests our resources and expertise into helping children be healthier and safer in all aspects of their daily lives. In partnership with community organizations, local leaders and families like yours, we can clear new paths for every child’s potential.

Extending health where children live, learn and play

Raising kids is a tough job. We are here to help parents and caregivers navigate health and wellness issues through a variety of workshops, articles and connections to community resources.

Children’s Mercy brings health education and care to children through our partnerships with local schools. From athletic training to asthma care, our experts meet children where they are to improve the health of our community.

Health and safety programs and improvements for children strengthen our neighborhoods and families. See how we are helping to make the Kansas City region a safer, stronger place for children to grow up.

Community efforts are targeted at the health needs identified in a triennial Community Health Needs Assessment and are documented annually through Community Benefit reporting.
