The specialists at Children's Mercy East provide expert care for children at our convenient location in eastern Jackson County, Missouri. The East campus offers pediatric-specific care with more than 15 specialties within the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation Specialty Clinics. The Edward G. and Kathryn Mader Urgent Care Clinic on the second floor of the building is available seven days a week.
We also provide medical imaging and laboratory services with a provider's order (not a part of urgent care).

Telehealth (online) visits
Is telehealth right for my visit today?
Telehealth visits allow your child to be cared for from the comfort of your own home.

For in-person visits, patients can schedule an appointment online using Save My Spot, or walk-in to one of our three locations. Walk-in appointments are available until 7 p.m. every day.
To minimize waiting, patients are encouraged to use Save My Spot. Here’s how:
