Saint Luke's Hospital Crittenton Children's Center
For more than 100 years, Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City Crittenton Children’s Center has cared for the emotional and mental health of Kansas City’s children and their families. Our multidisciplinary treatment teams use evidence-based therapies to help children learn to regulate their emotions, build communication skills, and develop lifelong strategies for resilience and strength.
Backed by the resources of Saint Luke’s Health System, Crittenton Children’s Center is here for your child and family. As demonstrated by our Magnet® Recognition—a program that recognizes excellence in nursing—patient families can rest assured their children will receive personalized care by an exceptional staff, all within a safe environment where families can focus on healing.
Crittenton developed Trauma Smart®, a highly-successful, early-childhood trauma intervention program, to help children 3 to 5 years of age heal from complex or repetitive trauma. Schools, Head Start programs, and other organizations across the larger Kansas City region—and beyond—are benefiting from this innovative program.
Crittenton is always looking for caring volunteers, especially for our mentorship program. We need role models to provide teens with emotional support and help them develop the life and social skills needed to thrive as adults.
