KVC Hospitals Kansas City
KVC Hospitals Kansas City, formerly known as KVC Prairie Ridge Hospital, helps youth ages 6 to 18 who are experiencing depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, impacts of trauma, and other behavioral and mental health challenges. Our acute hospitalization and residential psychiatric treatment programs provide modern, safe, and child-friendly environments that encourage positive interactions and creativity. While receiving treatment, clients can attend KVC Academy, our alternative education program.
We accept Missouri and Kansas Medicaid plans and most private insurance plans.
Helping Kids Be Kids and Families Heal
The private, serene 75-acres are located in Kansas City, Kansas, just minutes from I-70 and tucked into the rolling hills of the Kaw Valley. Recreation features include an indoor gym and climbing wall, outdoor adventure course, and outdoor sports and activity spaces. Our Learning Labs offer unique educational opportunities for youth with hands-on activities such as virtual reality, emotion regulation drills, experiential therapies, and other innovative treatment approaches.
Families can visit their child and spend time together in a comfortable, private family room and for families who live out of town, we can use tele-video equipment for a virtual visit.
