Pediatric Care

MHS realizes that there are few greater joys than to see children smile, hear them laugh, or watch them play. That is why we have dedicated ourselves to caring for children with special needs and providing support for their families. Through MHS Pediatric Services, a division of Mercy Healthcare Services, dedicated solely to the needs of young patients and their families, we not only preserve quality of life, we preserve childhood.

At MHS, we know that no two children are the same. That’s why our pediatric services are designed on a case-by-case basis, specific to the needs of the child. We believe that offering uncompromising care to children is not only important, it’s essential.
