Complex Care Program

Mercy's Complex Care Program in St. Louis

The Mercy Kids Complex Care Program at Mercy Hospital St. Louis cares for children with chronic medical conditions and their families. By serving as a guide through the health care system and connecting families with a wide range of resources, we help provide children with the most comprehensive care possible... and bring parents and caregivers peace of mind.  

We're here to help relieve the stress of coordinating care so you can focus on being a parent. From helping meet your medical equipment needs to assistance with planning appointments, we're your first point of contact. 

About Our CCP

Children with medical complexities require daily, non-stop monitoring and constant care. By serving as the connection of all care providers, we ensure a seamless continuity of care. We work hand in hand with your child's primary care provider to coordinate specialist care and meet any other needs your child or family may have.  

Services & Benefits of Our Program

Having a child with a chronic or long-lasting medical condition is stressful enough by itself. Navigating the healthcare system can be bewildering to everyone. By guiding families through the system, Mercy's CCMP program relieves the stress of figuring out what options are available and how to benefit from them.

By connecting families with community resources, psychological support, financial resources, pastoral care, and other services, we provide families with the tools and connections they need to care for themselves and their children.

The Children We Serve

Very often, a chronic or long-term medical condition affects or compromises other systems and requires complex care: the expertise of specialists from different medical disciplines. Conditions requiring care and monitoring from a whole care team include:

  • Juvenile diabetes
  • Developmental disorders
  • Heart disease
  • Sickle-cell anemia
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Cerebral palsy
