Media Contact: 

COTTLEVILLE, Mo – It’s here. Less than one year after the groundbreaking, Mercy Kids Mid Rivers in Cottleville, Missouri, opens today, Nov. 17. Mercy Kids Mid Rivers is a 25,000-square-foot center focused solely on pediatric outpatient care, making it the first of its kind in St. Charles County.

Services offered in the new location include the pediatric specialties of gastroenterology, neurology and sports medicine, along with child psychiatry and child/adolescent counseling services. Additional offerings include Mercy Kids Therapy and Development Center with autism-related programs, a pediatric rehabilitation gym along with educational and screening programs. Coming in January 2015, a pediatric walk-in clinic will provide care for those up to age 21.

In addition to specialty and walk-in care, the facility will be the new home for Mercy Clinic Pediatrics-Mid Rivers (formerly St. Charles County Pediatrics) with six Mercy Clinic pediatricians and two pediatric nurse practitioners.

“With this new location, we’ve followed through on our commitment to provide convenient access to general pediatric care but also specialty therapies, like behavioral health,” said Dr. John Mantovani, child neurologist and pediatric department chair for Mercy Children’s Hospital-St. Louis. “Ten to 15 percent of children benefit from therapy at some point, and Mercy Kids is unique in terms of such a comprehensive commitment to primary and specialty care as well as behavioral and developmental health.”

Beyond the name of the building, Mercy Kids refers to a new way of caring for children. Dr. Joseph Kahn, president of Mercy Kids added,  “Rather than caring for children only when they’re sick and need a hospital, Mercy Kids cares for the whole child, for their physical and emotional well being from conception through childhood, and adolescence and into adulthood.”

For more details about the new facility, please visit www.mercykids.org/cottleville.

Mercy Kids is a network of pediatric care dedicated to meeting the needs of every child, every day.  It’s powered by more than 700 pediatricians and family doctors in partnership with 125 pediatric specialists.  Anchored by two acute care pediatric hospitals in St. Louis and Springfield, Missouri, Mercy Kids offers a full range of services to support healthy childhoods, including pediatric, specialty and educational services.

Mercy Kids Expands Footprint in St. Charles County

Officials mark groundbreaking of Mercy Kids Mid Rivers
with a ceremonial first dig.

ST. LOUIS – When kids get sick, only the sickest ever spend time in the hospital. The others can usually be cared for in a doctor’s office, urgent care or other outpatient center.

Mercy is expanding in St. Charles County with a new 25,000-square-foot, pediatric outpatient center in Cottleville set to open in 2014. Officials from Cottleville, St. Charles County and Mercy gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony Monday, Nov. 25. The new center is the latest addition for Mercy Kids.

“Mercy Kids is more than a hospital or a building – it includes a broad range of pediatric services and locations to meet the needs of children at every age,” said Dr. Joseph Kahn, president of Mercy Kids. “From immunizations to the latest therapies for autism to caring for kids with cancer, our physicians and other specialized caregivers work together to keep kids healthy.”

Mercy Kids Mid Rivers in Cottleville will offer general pediatric and pediatric sub-specialty care, after-hours pediatric convenient care, therapy and developmental services including autism-related services, outpatient behavioral health programs, a pediatric rehabilitation gym, and educational and screening programs to maximize children’s healthy.

“We want to provide the best care for kids in all Mercy locations,” said Dr. John Mantovani, child neurologist and pediatric department chair for Mercy Kids St. Louis. “While we have Mercy Children’s Hospital in Creve Coeur to provide care for children with more complex needs, most kids fortunately never need those services. Their care can be provided at the new Mercy Kids Mid Rivers and other out-patient Mercy Kids locations throughout the region. This focus on convenient and effective care fills the void for the thousands who never need to see the inside of hospital.”

Already, Mercy Kids in St. Louis is home to more than 150 pediatricians and pediatric specialists whose areas of expertise include everything from hematology and oncology to neurology, urology, gastroenterology, behavioral health, psychiatry and more.

“One of our primary goals is to provide care close to home for children whenever the need arises,” explained Dr. Mantovani.

AFib Patients Have New Option to Reduce Stroke Risk

ST. LOUIS – Approximately 6 million U.S. adults have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AFib), a condition characterized by rapid and irregular heartbeat and a high risk of heart failure and stroke. One-quarter of all strokes in the elderly are attributed to AFib but there is now a new option for stroke prevention in the area.

On Feb. 13, cardiologists at Mercy Hospital St. Louis were the first in Missouri to perform a non-surgical procedure using sutures to tie off a left atrial appendage (LAA), which is the source of blood clots leading to stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AFib). 

With the patient under general anesthesia, the physicians guided two catheters into the patient’s heart to seal the LAA with a pre-tied suture loop. Each procedure is completed by a team including an electrophysiologist and interventional cardiologist along with supporting clinicians. The team consists of electrophysiologists Mauricio Sanchez, MD and Amit Doshi, MD and interventional cardiologists Anthony Sonn, MD and Clark McKenzie, MD, all with Mercy Clinic Heart and Vascular.

“The technique is a safe alternative for AFib patients at high risk for stroke who can’t be on blood thinners due to history of bleeds or a high fall risk,” Dr. Sanchez said.

“This procedure has the potential to save many lives,” Dr. Sonn said. “AFib patients who can’t be on blood thinners to prevent stroke risk now have an option. Before this procedure, they would be on an aspirin a day and take their chances.”

The majority of AFib patients take warfarin because left untreated, AFib can cause life-threatening blood clots leading to stroke. Approximately 25-30 percent of patients with AFib have contraindications to the drug – such as concerns of falling or imbalance in elderly patients – and, for those who can take it, only about 55-60 percent receive warfarin.

Those who do take warfarin must rigorously manage the drug’s level in their blood. High levels can cause excessive or internal bleeding, even after minor falls, bruises, or cuts. For some, this management regime can mean monthly tests over the course of many years. In eliminating the need to take warfarin, the LAA procedure can reduce the need for frequent medical visits. 

Mercy is also in the second phase of the PREVAIL clinical trial - one of the leading trial sites nationally - comparing the WATCHMAN® Left Atrial Appendage Closure Device to long-term warfarin therapy, another option for some patients with AFib. This phase of the trial allows all patients who meet the criteria to have the WATCHMAN® Device implant without being randomized to warfarin therapy alone.

Christmas Carols Bring Joy to Patients at Mercy Hospital Lincoln

Media Contact: 

Kelly Hardcastle and patient Norman.

TROY, Mo. – Kelly Hardcastle bustles through the halls joyfully greeting each patient at Mercy Hospital Lincoln. A chaplain at the hospital since 2012, Kelly begins each visit by introducing himself and immediately asks questions to get to know the patients more personally. His kind and gentle nature provides spiritual healing.

During the month of December, Kelly asks each patient their favorite Christmas song and proceeds to sing, encouraging them to join in.

“It is a blessing to fulfill the calling that God has placed upon my life,” Kelly said. “I receive joy when I have the opportunity to minister to the patients and co-workers at Mercy Hospital Lincoln.”

Kelly is not reluctant to sing; the son of gospel singers, his parents and grandparents were regular performers at the Grand Ole Opry singing beautiful gospel hymns.

“Patients light up as Kelly enters the room,” said Tony Rothermich, Mercy Hospital Lincoln administrator. “It’s a very humbling experience to join Kelly in greeting each patient and see how he brightens their day.”

Chaplains like Kelly offer care to meet the emotional and spiritual needs of patients, families and staff. Chaplains are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help patients and visitors access the spiritual guidance they desire.

Child-created quilt to be auctioned at
the Benefit for Mercy Kids Dinner and Auction in July.

COTTLEVILLE, Mo. - MOSAICS Missouri Festival for the Arts recently made both a monetary and child-created quilt donation to Mercy Health Foundation St. Louis. These donations were made as a result of the non-profit art association’s 2015 Festival event, specifically from the MOSAICS Festival’s Children’s Village and the Art for Youth Gallery.

The $420 check and the special quilt were presented by MOSAICS Board President Richard Baum to Howard Schlansky, MD, medical director of pediatrics for Mercy Clinic St. Louis and Joseph Kahn, MD, president of Mercy Kids, at Mercy Kids Mid Rivers in Cottleville.

During the 2015 MOSAICS Festival, Mercy Kids sponsored the Children’s Village area where children had an opportunity to paint a quilt panel about their pet. The top 15 quilt panels were then chosen to be included in the final child-created quilt design/project, designed in collaboration with Jean McMullen, MOSAICS board member, and local quilter Terri Guillickson.

The quilt will be displayed until July 2016 when it will be auctioned at the Benefit for Mercy Kids Dinner and Auction event. Proceeds from the quilt will help fund the McAuley Playground to be constructed behind Mercy Kids Mid Rivers.

The McAuley Playground will be an Unlimited Play Inclusive Playground honoring the life of Sister of Mercy Founder Catherine McAuley -- a place where limitations will be forgotten and differences are celebrated. The playground, to be funded entirely by donations, has reached 64 percent of its goal with a projected construction start mid-2016.

Where To Take Kids When the Doctor's Office is Closed

Media Contact: 

Joe Nahlik, PNP, cares for patients in the pediatric
emergency department and the Mercy Kids Convenient Care
in Cottleville, Missouri.

Your child isn’t feeling well or just fell off of their bike. Your heart sinks and you ask yourself, “Where should I take him for treatment?”  It’s best to call your child’s pediatrician, who knows your child and can direct you to an appropriate level of care.  However, childhood injuries and illnesses often occur at night or on weekends, when your doctor’s office is closed. If calling the doctor’s office isn’t an option, how do we as parents know where to take our sick or injured child?

You have three options for care when your doctor’s office is closed: convenient care, urgent care or the emergency department.

First, let’s look at convenient care, or walk-in clinics. Convenient care sites that see children are suitable when your doctor’s office has no appointments available or the office is closed. With no appointment necessary, walk-in clinics offer care for most concerns for which you would normally go to the doctor’s office. These include coughs, colds, earaches, upset stomach, sore throat, urinary tract infections, rashes, minor injuries or other mild health conditions. If you think your child has an injury or condition requiring an x-ray, repair of a larger wound, or maybe IV or blood tests, then you should seek care at another facility. Most convenient cares only require a doctor’s office co-pay, and usually close at 7 or 8 p.m.

Urgent care would be the next level of care. Think of urgent cares as “mini emergency rooms” that are open on weekends and usually close at 7 or 8 p.m. They are equipped to handle more serious, non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries. It’s more efficient to use urgent care than an emergency department, in terms of both money and time. The typical wait time at an urgent care center is less than 30 minutes, compared with longer wait times at an emergency department. Co-pays at urgent cares are a little higher than at walk-in clinics, but are lower than at an ER.

The emergency room is like the name states – for emergencies. The staff is equipped and trained to handle life-threatening situations and more severe illnesses and injuries. Specialists can also be consulted and involved in your child’s care, if needed. The emergency room never closes – it is open 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week, 365 days-a-year.

If you find yourself in a situation when the convenient care or urgent care is closed and end up at the emergency room, please don’t be discouraged if there is a wait. Remember, in an emergency department, the sickest or most severely injured go first.

As parents, you know your child better than anyone. If you can’t reach your pediatrician, use your best judgment as to where your child needs to be seen. Keep in mind that if one facility is not equipped to handle your child’s needs, you may be directed to a different one with the necessary resources.

Stay safe and be well.
