Being a leader in children’s health means doing our part to make sure the Kansas City region is a healthy place to grow up. Children's Mercy engages in meaningful programs, opportunities, and partnerships that improve the lives of children beyond the walls of our hospital. These initiatives help support the hospital’s mission and bring solutions to some of our community’s most pressing health issues.
The programs and activities that Children’s Mercy supports across our community are known as Community Benefit. In Fiscal Year 2018, Children’s Mercy recorded over $178 million in programs and activities that support the health and well-being of children across the community. The Children’s Mercy triennial Community Health Needs Assessment identifies current conditions affecting children’s health in the Kansas City region.
