KU Wichita Pediatrics works together for the health of future generations of Kansas children through our dedication to educating tomorrow's pediatricians, making new discoveries and providing the care kids need close to home.
With your support, we can help more children in our communities from right here in Wichita.
"Our daughter, Reese, was diagnosed with Very High Risk pre-B-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia the day before her fourth birthday. Reese started chemotherapy with Dr. Hall and his team at Wesley Children's Hospital. She did not get into remission after two cycles of chemo, which meant she would need a bone marrow transplant. They used a newer medication (immunotherapy) that no one else in Wichita has used and it got her into remission. She was then able to go to Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City for her bone marrow transplant. Since Children's Mercy knew what detailed care she would receive in Wichita, they released her quickly after her transplant. Reese is receiving exceptional care in Wichita, so our trips to Kansas City have been few and far between. We are blessed to be able to spend time together at home instead of on the road."

We are committed to excellence in medical student and resident education, and believe that to teach with integrity we must first prioritize the clinical needs of our patients. Through our clinical programs, advocacy, teaching, faculty development and scholarship, we will always put Kansas children and their health and loved ones first."
