Additional Information

Maternal Fetal Medicine Physician – Children’s Mercy’s Elizabeth J. Ferrell Fetal Health Center

Children’s Mercy’s Elizabeth J. Ferrell Fetal Health Center is a state-of-the-art prenatal diagnosis facility, located in one of only a handful of children’s hospitals in the nation – and the first in the Midwest.  The Center provides general MFM services for the region, but is also specifically focused on a comprehensive, integrated medical model for managing pregnancies complicated by complex fetal malformations.  The Center is seeking an additional maternal fetal medicine physician to join the current 5 member MFM team.  The Center also provides an array of fetal interventional services including fetoscopic procedures and fetal meningomyelocele repair.  The MFM department provides clinical services at other hospitals including Truman Medical Center and Olathe Medical Center.  Physicians have academic appointments with The University of Missouri-Kansas City. Both Children’s Mercy and Truman Medical Center are teaching hospitals and medical students, OB/Gyn residents and/or MFM fellows participate in most clinical services.
