Lee’s Summit, Raintree, and Blue Springs Pediatrics—the three individually named locations of Lee’s Summits Physicians Group’s pediatric practices— are now collectively called Community Choice Pediatrics—An Affiliate of Children’s Mercy.
The new name also reflects a recently signed agreement between the practice and Children’s Mercy Hospital. This new relationship between the practice and the hospital benefits Community Choice’s patients, their parents (caregivers), and both organizations.
Affiliating enables the practice and the hospital to share data, ideas, and best practices. We will work together on quality and efficiency initiatives as well as streamlining processes. All of these collaborations are expected to lead to better care, improved outcomes, and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
Community Choice Pediatrics and Children’s Mercy Hospital will remain separate entities and continue to operate independently. No staff changes will occur at Community Choice Pediatrics because of the affiliation, and patients will continue to see the same provider they currently see, with a few newly added providers!
More information coming soon regarding website, social media, new phone system and portal in the coming weeks!
