HCA Midwest Health—Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider—announces the reopening of the ER of Shawnee. The conveniently located, freestanding emergency room will return to its regular schedule of being open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day serving adults and kids in the northeast Johnson County community. ER of Shawnee is affiliated with Overland Park Regional Medical Center, which offers Johnson County’s only Trauma Center.
Staffed with board-certified emergency physicians with extensive emergency treatment experience and a highly trained nursing team and support staff that provides compassionate, expert care to patients of all ages, ER of Shawnee has virtually no wait times and offers everything a patient would receive at a traditional hospital ER, such as broken bones, loss of consciousness, pain or bleeding, and everyday illnesses and ailments. In addition to walk-in patients, ambulances bring patients from across the area. Encompassing 10,000 square feet, the ER of Shawnee has cutting-edge diagnostic radiology, CT Scan, X-ray and ultrasound, full laboratory for blood and other tests, trauma room, contamination room, isolation room and 10 patient rooms. Through a digital communications system, the ER stays in constant communication with surrounding area emergency rooms. If hospitalization is required, Overland Park Regional Medical Center follows standardized medical protocols to safely transfer patients in a timely manner.
The ER of Shawnee temporarily closed last spring to most effectively consolidate and deploy tremendous resources and well-experienced clinicians in response to the pandemic. It implements the infection prevention protocols and precautions of HCA Midwest Health’s parent company, HCA Healthcare, to ensure the safety of its patients and staff, including universal masking and hand sanitizer for every individual before entering the facility.
