Children’s Mercy Opens Clinics In St. Joe
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Children’s Mercy Hospitals and Clinics is expanding its presence in St. Joseph, Mo. Although Children’s Mercy has had outreach clinics in St. Joseph for the last 20 years, this is the first permanent location, housed on the campus of Heartland Regional Medical Center, a news release said.
“We’ve heard from both doctors and families that their patients want access to the expertise of Children’s Mercy without travel to Kansas City,” said Marshaun Butler, Vice President, Children’s Mercy South and Regional Medical Practices.
“This move supports our commitment to meeting the needs of children in St. Joseph and Northwest Missouri, in partnership with the outstanding St. Joseph medical community…”
Two outreach clinics, Children’s Mercy Cardiology and Endocrinology, are expanding and relocating to new space under the name Children’s Mercy Kansas City-Heartland Specialty Clinics.
The clinics will now be offered at 802 N. Riverside Road, Suite 105, St. Joseph, on the campus of the Heartland Regional Medical Center.
Those outreach clinics were previously located nearby at Lakeside Pediatrics.
Both the Cardiology Clinic and the Endocrinology Clinicbegan seeing patients in the new year, the hospital said.
In addition, plans are under way to establish an Asthma/Allergy telemedicine clinic. Other clinics, including Gastroenterology and Weight Management, are under consideration.
The new Children’s Mercy facilities, located in the Plaza 1 building on the Heartland Campus, include four exam rooms (three standard exam rooms and one telemedicine room); a height and weight room; a medication room; and a staff area.
