High volumes of patients

We are experiencing high volumes of patients due to an increase in viral infections in our community, which has resulted in longer-than-normal wait times. We know this can be frustrating and we greatly appreciate your patience.

Services

Children's Mercy Northland is home to more than 20 specialty clinics, including the Children's Mercy Tourette's Syndrome Center of Excellence. We provide medical imaging and laboratory services with a provider's order. Urgent care is open seven days a week for your convenience.

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.

  • After you sign up for a telehealth visit, you will receive a confirmation text message from Children's Mercy.
  • Then you will receive a phone call to be registered for your visit.

Telehealth visits are available:

  • Every day: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

In-person visits

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:

  • Choose the location closest to you.
