Family-Centered Care

Mercy Children’s Hospital incorporates the family-centered care philosophy into all of its services. At the heart of family-centered care is the belief that health-care providers and the family are partners, working together to best meet the needs of the child.

This is our Family-Centered Care philosophy statement, drafted by parents and adopted by our hospital administration:

Family-Centered Care Philosophy Statement

Family-centered care is an approach to the planning, delivery and evaluation of health care that is grounded in mutually beneficial partnerships between health-care providers and parents.

This philosophy is based on the following assumptions:

  1. The parent is the primary care coordinator for their child and is competent in this role.
  2. Parents will be given the information and tools they need to make appropriate choices for their child.
  3. The ongoing participation of the parent is critical to family-centered care.
  4. There is a high level of acceptance for individuality and cultural diversity.
  5. A parent is defined as an individual with the ongoing, primary responsibility of nurturing a child.
