Wesley Children’s Hospital

Expert Care for Kansas Kids

Wesley Medical Center provides the widest range of expert pediatric care in the region. Children at Wesley are cared for by more than 50 pediatric specialists and subspecialists using state-of-the-art technology in a family-centered healing environment.

Wesley’s commitment to caring for Kansas kids includes the expansion of its children’s services and renovating its current inpatient pediatric areas with the construction of a $28 million children’s hospital: Wesley Children’s Hospital. The project will give the south Kansas community their first and only hospital dedicated to pediatric care. The expansion and renovation includes facelifts for the pediatric unit, pediatric intensive care unit and the region’s only pediatric emergency department.

Pediatric Unit

The 31-bed pediatric unit is geared toward the needs of children and their families. The unit is staffed by board-certified pediatric hospitalists. All patient rooms are private. Child life specialists use age-appropriate explanation of procedures, therapeutic play and stress-reduction activities.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit

The 15-bed pediatric intensive care unit is staffed by board-certified pediatric intensivists, experienced pediatric nurses, technologists and respiratory therapists. State-of-the-art technology and design contribute to quality care.

Wesley supports a philosophy of family-centered care. Adjacent to the PICU are parent sleep rooms, showers and Ronald McDonald Family Room. A Ronald McDonald House is also located near our campus.
