A Peek Behind the Room Divider
 
  • Founded in 1941 by Mary Ranken Jordan who implored her staff to "...consider the children, first, in all that we do." These words still guide every employee, every day.
  • Our guiding mission is to help kids and their families' transition from hospital to home.
  • That means we practice world-class pediatric medicine to treat the symptoms but we also train parents and caregivers to provide a high-level of care at home so patients continue to progress after discharge.
  • "Care Beyond the Bedside" means that our kids receive their therapies and rehab away from their rooms and out of their beds as much as 70% of the day. The rest of the time, they are playing just being kids in our state of the art facility designed to inspire children!
  • In 2002 we opened our current 34 inpatient hospital in Maryland Heights, MO. In early 2018 we opened a 78,000 sq. ft. addition to double our inpatient beds to 60+ and expand our outpatient practice.
  • We also offer Community Programs that provide wonderful recreational and educational programs for all kids and their families...at no charge!
