Mission: The mission of Turner House Children''s Clinic is to provide quality primary healthcare to uninsured and underserved children in the Kansas City metropolitan area.
Programs: Primary and Preventive Care:
Turner House Children’s Clinic provides bilingual and culturally-sensitive primary care to children 0-18, regardless of their ability to pay. If a patient does not have Medicaid or SCHIP, a sliding scale fee is being implimented to request a reasonable fee from the patient based on their income; patients are accepted at 200% of poverty and below. Primary and preventive care services include well-baby and well child-exams, sports physicals and immunizations. The primary reasons for acute care visits are for respiratory conditions, ear infections, common colds, sore throats, other childhood diseases. All patients are encouraged to call ahead to schedule same-day appointments for urgent care. Walk-in patients are triaged by the clinic manager and fitted into the schedule if conditions require immediate medical attention.
