Mercy Children’s Clinic is one of the top pediatric medical centers. We are also known as one of “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals” by the U.S. News and World Report. We give our health care services for children from birth until they reach 21 years old. We have 351 beds that can accommodate our patients.
Our medical staffs, pediatricians and researchers are really keen and passionate to help children grow healthy, physically fit and mentally alert. While it’s true that some children are already enrolled in TennCare and have already their health care insurance, there are still children who don’t have a health care insurance. Because of this, a group headed by Dr. Timothy M. Henschel gathered to talk about issues concerning health care access of children who are enrolled and are beneficiaries of the Tennessee Medical Program. They particularly consider the case of children who are not enrolled and have no health care insurance.
After a series of discussions, the group headed by Dr. Timothy M. Henschel has assessed and validated that health care services should not only be limited to children who already have a health care insurance. They believe that health care services should also be given to children who don’t have health care insurance. Because of this, the Mercy Children’s Clinic was conceived and was finally launched to cater to the medical needs of all the children.
Hand in hand, our vision and mission have inspired the medical team, business sector, non-profit organization and the government sector to give and provide best health care services to all the children.
