Ranken Jordan is the country's first pediatric bridge hospital. Inpatients and outpatients with complex medical conditions, injuries and illnesses come to our one-of-a-kind facility from throughout the region to get better faster and prepare for the transition back to home.

We are GROWING and our new expansion is now complete!   We are looking for amazing new EMPLOYEES like you! 

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 February we completed 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!
