Labor and delivery hospital at Wesley Medical Center

Wesley Medical Center was the first hospital in Kansas to be designated a Baby-Friendly Hospital, an initiative that encourages skin-to-skin contact between moms and newborns, as well as sharing a room with your newborn after birth.

We offer two locations for labor and delivery on our main campus—one in our main building within Wesley Women's Hospital, and the second right across the street at Wesley Birth Care Suites. Regardless of which Wesley location you deliver at, our goal is to help you make the birth of your baby the special occasion you want it to be.

To learn more about labor and delivery options, please call (316) 962-3627.

Wesley Women's Hospital

Wesley Women’s Hospital, located within Wesley Medical Center, offers specialized childbirth rooms designed for more complicated deliveries.

All women—whether experiencing a routine or high-risk pregnancy—are welcome to deliver at Wesley Women’s Hospital, and it has all the amenities close-by for unexpected circumstances or complicated births. If additional medical services are needed, rest assured you are at a full-service hospital and will receive comprehensive, exceptional care.

Within Wesley Women’s Hospital is a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), where we care for premature or ill newborns.

Wesley Birth Care Suites

Wesley Birth Care Suites, located on the north side of Murdock Street, provides a comforting, family-centered environment for women to give birth. Expectant moms who are 37 weeks pregnant without complications and think they are in labor (or their water has broken) may deliver at Wesley Birth Care Suites.

Wesley Birth Care Suites has 20 birthing suites and two surgical suites for cesarean sections (C-sections). Labor, delivery and your postpartum stay all take place in the same room. This location offers anesthesiologists, family medicine physicians, OB/GYNs, scheduled inductions and all the amenities for a healthy delivery.

Preadmission testing clinic

The Wesley Birth Care Suites pre-admission testing clinic (PAT) helps save time for expectant moms with scheduled C-sections or scheduled inductions for delivery. About 24 to 72 hours before the scheduled delivery, expectant mothers will meet with the PAT nurse to complete a series of documentation and lab work to prevent schedule delays.

The clinic is located at Wesley Birth Care Suites and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or after hours by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please call (316) 962 8824.
