Prepare for your visit

Keeping all visitors safe

Nothing is more important than your safety when you visit Children's Mercy. To reduce the potential spread of COVID-19, masks are required for all visitors 2 years of age and older, and staff. You may bring your own mask. If you do not have one, a mask will be provided for you.

Traffic notice: Currently, street closures required by the construction of the Research Institute Tower will affect access routes to the Adele Hall campus.

Sections of 23rd Street and Locust Street will be closed, requiring all visitor traffic to approach from the south on Locust Street to access the hospital front entrance and visitor parking garage. The entrance and exit on the west side of the visitor parking garage will be closed indefinitely. Traffic signage will direct visitors through detours, though you may want to allow a few extra minutes in case of traffic delays. Thank you for your patience as we work through this construction project.

22nd Street closure: Additionally, as part of the Health Sciences District expansion, 22nd Street will be closed or reduced to one lane between Campbell and Charlotte. This will begin September 30 and potentially last until February 2020. Please allow extra time to arrive.
