Kansas City’s nonprofit children’s hospital. HIGH FIVE! 🤚 For the first time - all 10 Children’s Mercy specialties rank in the top 30 by @usnews.
This week, we celebrated the Topping Off of our new Children’s Research Institute with many of the donors who are making this dream possible. Thanks to them, and countless others, our love will find answers for children and families in Kansas City and around the world. @ResearchCM #ThankfulThursday #GiveMercyKC
We love getting updates from our #InsidePediatrics families! "Today, Sawyer started her first day of Kindergarten! Hard to believe this sweet, sassy, playful, all around full of life 5 year old was once diagnosed with extreme heart failure at 3 months that resulted in a heart transplant at around 18 months," wrote her mom, Melissa. "It is because of the selfless gift from a donor family & all of the caring, hardworking professionals at Children's Mercy, that our brave Heart Warrior can celebrate this amazing milestone! Sawyer is living her best life because of you all. Thank you!" ❤️

Calling all toy lovers, we have some exciting news to share! A team of our amazing occupational and speech therapists had the opportunity to partner with our friends at @fatbraintoys to develop a new toy called Fruit Friends! This collection of three toys aims to directly address essential cognitive and physical developmental goals. Check out two of our kiddos, Jeremiah & Birdie, having a blast playing with the toy! Fruit Friends is now available for purchase online and in store and the best part is that Children’s Mercy benefits from each sale. Get yours today at http://bit.ly/FruitFriends!
This house is officially a home! Thank you to @summithomeskc and their premier trade partners who donated labor, materials and services to build this exceptional home to benefit our kiddos. We celebrated the sale of the home to a lovely family and the 3rd birthday for one of our little heroes, Levi! #ThankfulThursday #GiveMercyKC
“The inspiration is really the kids, fighting with a smile on their face. It’s good for our players to see this, and we’ll have a much better spirit at practice because of today’s visit.” - #KUbball Coach Bill Self Thank you to all of the Jayhawks who brightened our kids’ day!💙
Meet Reese! At birth, she was diagnosed with Down Syndrome along with a Congenital Heart Defect. She and her family @mizzoumum spent much of her first year at Children’s Mercy, their second home, rotating through a variety of specialties. She even had open heart surgery that literally saved her life. Reese and her family feel forever indebted to the staff at Children’s Mercy and are giving back to show their appreciation. Partnering with @papercloudsapparel , Reese and her sisters created 5 t-shirt designs and 50% of the proceeds go to the Children’s Mercy Facility Dog Program. Buy yours by July 21! https://papercloudsapparel.com/ #GiveMercyKC #ThankfulThursday
