Dec 4, 2012

Two Kansas City hospitals have announced plans to work together to create a single, integrated pediatric program. 

Children’s Mercy and the University of Kansas Hospital say they'll work together to improve pediatric care. They're also hoping to expand research, boost training and coordinate children’s health initiatives.

The partnership also includes the KU Med Center and the KU Physicians group. The two hospitals already work together on medical education, research and clinical trials.
