After hours

NOT FOR EMERGENCIES – if you have an emergency, call 911

Please call Newton Medical Center Switchboard at 283-2700 and ask to have your child's heath care provider paged.

The switchboard will put you through to Children’s Mercy Nurse Triage at 866-399-5941 and you will talk to a live person about your child. (You may call this number directly if you wish.)

If possible, please have the following information ready:

  • Your doctor’s name
  • Your name and phone number that you can respond to for at least one hour

Note: Make sure the line is not busy or you left, unless you are going to the ER.

  • Your child’s name and date of birth
  • A brief description of the problem (i.e., fever, breathing difficulties)

A pediatric nurse will return your call within 10 minutes and address your concerns. (If it is over an hour, please call them back and let them know.)

DO NOT TIE UP THE TELEPHONE NUMBER YOU GAVE THEM TO CALL YOU.

  • If the nurse thinks the situation requires doctor assistance, they will page the on-call pediatrician for Cottonwood Pediatrics.

OR

  • If you want to talk to a doctor after talking with the pediatric nurse, just ask them to page us.  They have directions to put you through.

Credentialing

All items regarding credentialing are handled through a different address. If you need to contact us for those items, please call the clinic office and ask for Sue Ann Jantz.
