Truman Medical Centers and Children’s Mercy have a special connection.

Children’s Mercy neonatologists and neonatal staff are onsite if a baby is born with a critical medical condition.

TMC’s HSD Birthplace also provides care to mothers who deliver at Children’s Mercy Hospital if those mothers develop a critical medical condition.

While our Bridge of Hope physically connects the two buildings, it also represents the seamless partnership between the two facilities, creating unparalleled access and care when every minute matters.

Babies born at TMC’s HSD Birthplace are, if needed, just steps away from Children’s Mercy’s Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) – the only Level IV NICU in the region and rated among the Best in the Nation by US News and World Report.

TMC Health Sciences District Birthplace also has a Level III NICU that is staffed by Children’s Mercy Hospital (CMH) Neonatologists and Neonatal Nurse Practitioners.

TMC Lakewood Family Birthplace has a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The NICU includes Children’s Mercy Hospital (CMH) neonatologists and neonatal staff.

Families who deliver with Truman Medical Centers have peace of mind knowing they will be cared for by compassionate, experienced TMC specialists and Children’s Mercy providers.
