Welcome to the University of Missouri Children's Hospital
Thank you for visiting our website. We are happy to be chosen as a participant in the Walmart Foundation's Associate Choice Program. We created this page to tell the stories of our patients and our hospital. We hope you find it interesting.
About Children's Hospital
Every year, MU Children's Hospital treats thousands of kids, from those just entering the world at our Family Birth Center to those fighting for their lives and undergoing cancer treatment. The staff at Children's Hospital is dedicated to treating all children with skill, dignity and compassion. Our mission is to improve the health of kids throughout our state -- and we succeed by caring for children from every county in Misouri.
Whether a child has a case of the sniffles or a chronic disease such as cystic fibrosis, the professionals at Children's Hospital offer medical care designed specifically for children in a kid-friendly environment. With more than 100 hospital beds dedicated to the our children and dozens of expert doctors, we are mid-Missouri's most complete pediatric health care facility.
We pride ourselves on offering innovative health care options for kids with a wide array of complex medical conditions. We provide care in more than 30 pediatric sub-specialties, including orthopaedic surgery, radiology, a pediatric sleep lab, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and newborn and pediatric intensive care. Children's Hospital houses Missouri's first clinic for children with fetal alcohol syndrome and mid-Missouri's only pediatric blood disorders and cancer outpatient unit.
In 2010, we admitted 4,150 patients to Children's Hospital, and visits to our clinics numbered more than 45,000.
