Expansions and Renovations of Mother/Baby units of represent $35 million investment in the past year
Overland Park Regional Medical Center — part of HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s largest healthcare provider and the largest provider of women’s health services in the region — will unveil newly renovated and expanded Women’s and Children’s Services which features a dedicated entrance for pediatric patients and expectant mothers needing labor and delivery services.
“This grand opening represents an investment by Overland Park Regional Medical Center to help build a healthy and thriving community and offer greater access to cutting-edge services for women and children,” said hospital CEO Matt Sogard, FACHE. “It is an honor for us and our exceptional teams to serve patients and their families in Johnson County and offer high quality, compassionate care in these leading-edge facilities.”
“We are thrilled that expectant mothers continue to choose our team of experts and specialists for top-tier care,” said Rabiya Suleman, MD, Board-certified OB-GYN at Overland Park Regional Medical Center. “We are dedicated to the health and well-being of our mothers and babies and look forward to caring for patients in the newly renovated and expanded labor and delivery unit, postpartum unit and antepartum unit.”
Rachel Loomis of Overland Park will speak at the grand opening event. Loomis was a high-risk pregnancy with all three of her children, who were delivered at Overland Park Regional Medical Center in 2018, 2019 and 2021. Each preemie spent time in the Overland Park Regional Medical Center Level III neonatal intensive care unit.
“The kids are thriving today,” said Loomis. “Their individual stories are vastly different but where they are today is amazing and honestly you would never know they were born early unless asked. I’m so incredibly grateful for the above-and-beyond care we received at Overland Park Regional, and these new units will serve mothers and their babies in similar situations in such a special way.”
Earlier this year, Overland Park Regional Medical Center unveiled a new, expanded clinic for Midwest Perinatal Associates. The office features four state-of-the-art patient rooms and a 4D OB/GYN ultrasound machine providing advanced imaging technology to help detect complex fetal anomalies earlier than before. The space also allows for expanded patient capacity and has an onsite genetic counselor.
