Wesley Medical Center is expanding its children’s services and renovating its current inpatient pediatric areas with the construction of $28 million children’s hospital: Wesley Children’s Hospital. This ambitious project will gives the south Kansas community their first and only hospital dedicated to pediatric care. The expansion and renovation includes facelifts for the pediatric emergency room, the region’s only pediatric emergency care unit and the pediatric intensive care unit.
Wesley Children’s Hospital will provide expert pediatric care for infants, children and teens while utilizing state-of-the-art technology. The facility will offer a family-centered healing environment for pediatric patients and their families, close to home.
Wesley has recruited five new pediatric specialists and three new pediatric hospitalists, with many more in various stages of recruitment. Construction has already begun on the pediatrics units’ temporary new homes on the fourth and sixth floors of the hospital’s tower building – including the installation of a new, state-of-the-art nurse call system – so patients and families will have access to the best technology and service, even during the construction process.
This hospital will advance Wesley’s role as a leader in children’s health and serve as an active advocate for children through the development of its upcoming children’s foundation. Wesley Children’s Hospital will continue to make advancements in pediatric health care by encouraging, supporting and participating in community programs that improve the health, education and overall wellness of Wichita’s children.
‘Wesley has an incredible team that provides exceptional care to our pediatric patients. Now, they’ll have a dedicated facility that matches their level of compassion and expertise.’
