Overland Park, KS — HCA Midwest Health — Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider — announces the reopening of the ER of Olathe. The freestanding emergency room, affiliated with Overland Park Regional Medical Center, is open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Located at 13505 S. Alden in Olathe, the freestanding ER is staffed with Board-certified Emergency Physicians and a highly trained nursing team and support staff that provides compassionate, expert ER care to patients of all ages.

The ER of Olathe temporarily closed in late March to most effectively consolidate and deploy tremendous resources and well-experienced clinicians to help prepare for the region’s coronavirus surge. 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.

The ER of Olathe 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 more than 10,000 square feet, the ER of Olathe is complete with CT scanner, MRI, full laboratory for blood and other tests, full radiology department, trauma room, contamination room, isolation room and 10 patient rooms. Through a digital communications system, the ER stays in 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.

Overland Park Regional Medical Center is open for inpatient services, including women’s and maternity services, neonatal intensive care services, orthopedics and inpatient rehabilitation and performs scheduled surgeries and procedures.
