The Shawnee Mission Birth Center is underway


You may have seen the ceremonial groundbreaking in the news, but Shawnee Mission Medical Center has begun construction of a $42 million birth center, which Hoefer Wysocki designed to help them remain the area’s first choice for maternity programs.

The new center is expected to be three times as large as Shawnee Mission Medical Center’s existing birth unit and is expected to open in early 2013. It’ll have 19 labor and delivery rooms, 36 private postpartum rooms and a 24-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit. Altogether, the unit will be able to care for as many as 30 babies at once and handle 5,000 births a year.

Even though construction has just started, Shawnee Mission Medical Center can’t wait to show off their new state-of-the-art facility. For a peek inside, visit:
