Health Issues For International Adoptees

Children from afar get local health care
Children adopted from overseas often bring issues with them: Parasites. Attachment difficulties. Developmental delays. Hepatitis. Feeding issues...

For them, finding a health care provider in this area with answers to their particular questions has been hit and miss — mostly miss. Until now.

Now there’s a special place — and soon there will be a second — for those families. Children’s Mercy Hospital has launched a clinic geared at the fast-growing population of internationally adopted children. The University of Kansas Hospital plans to follow suit in early September.
