The safety and well-being of our patients is our primary concern. As the days and weeks move forward, we must focus on keeping our community as healthy as possible in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak. At Health Care For Children we have been monitoring the latest announcements and have been communicating with Children’s Mercy resources daily. We have been adjusting our scheduling and phone advice protocols, along with our cleansing and disinfecting/rooming procedures in order to prevent the spread of illness.
We would like our patients and families to know that there will be new developments during the COVID-19 outbreak and we cannot predict how quickly advice and information may change. We recommend monitoring the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/coronavirus for the most up-to-date information on national recommendations. In the event there are patients who become ill and require COVID-19 testing, the Clay County Department of Health is coordinating all testing in our area.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is also regularly updating its site with helpful information as we progress through the COVID-19 outbreak.
Please note the following:
- Parent and patient over the age of 2 years MUST wear a mask during your visit to our office.
- We require that you finish your check-in process before your appointment time.
- We require that you call from your car when you arrive for instructions on entering our office. The phone number to call is 816-792-1170 X 4.
- You will be assigned a room when signing in.
- The area of the office to enter and exit may change as demand increases or decreases.
