A focus on care
Families are essential to the well-being and health of each patient. Families are important partners for the quality and safety in the care of their loved one. Families know their children best.
Children's Mercy values patient- and family-centered care. Patient- and family-centered care is a shared way of caring for patients. Staff respect the knowledge, skills, and experience that families give when making health care decisions. The family and health care team work together to make treatment plans and goals.
