Thanks for your interest in Children's Mercy!

Do you envision finding a meaningful role with an inclusive and compassionate team? At Children’s Mercy, we believe in making a difference in the lives of all children and shining a light of hope to the patients and families we serve. Our employees make the difference, which is why we have been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a top pediatric hospital, for eleven consecutive years.

 

Children’s Mercy is in the heart of Kansas City – a metro abounding in cultural experiences, vibrant communities and thriving businesses. This is where our patients and families live, work and play. This is a community that has embraced our hospital and we strive to say thanks by giving back. As a leader in children’s health, we engage in meaningful programs and partnerships throughout the region so that we can improve the lives of children beyond the walls of our hospital.

Overview

The Children’s Mercy neurology department ranks among America’s top pediatric neurology programs, according to U.S. News & World Report. We provide innovative solutions to care for our patients, like the Sarli Family Foundation Neurology Clinic, and our Comprehensive Epilepsy Center, one of only twelve pediatric epilepsy centers in the nation.

The Children's Mercy Comprehensive Stroke Center is the only pediatric stroke center in the region and one of just ten in the nation. Rapid diagnosis, treatment and follow-up services help kids who experience a stroke to receive the best possible care.

 

Our neurology team has more than 100 staff members, including pediatric doctors, nurses, imaging specialists and others who are experts in the developing brains and nervous systems of children.

All of our physicians are board-certified in neurology, meaning they have passed rigorous additional qualifications in this area of study. Many also have advanced expertise in a specific area of neurology, such as epilepsy or movement disorders. We are part of care teams for newborns in the NICU who need neurological care.

Children's Mercy has three of the very few doctors in the nation to be triple board certified in pediatric neurology, epilepsy, and clinical neurophysiology.

Our family-centered approach means that we’ve built a team of experts who will work together with you and your child’s primary care doctor to find solutions that work for your family.
