You Now Have a Choice When it Comes to Kids Healthcare

This post is sponsored by HCA Midwest Health.

When it comes to kids, the convenient, closer to home and efficient, the better. That’s why HCA Midwest Health is expanding pediatric care to the Lee’s Summit community. Our goal is to continue expanding the range of pediatric care offered in your community. That means bringing more pediatric specialists closer to families, so kids can get the care they need, close to home. The Pediatric Center at Lee’s Summit Medical Center (LSMC) offers pediatric general surgery, pediatric neurology, pediatric concussion and sports medicine, in addition to a pediatric-ready ER. 

If your child needs to be admitted into the hospital, or requires a specialist not yet at LSMC, our team works closely with The Pediatric Center at Overland Park Regional Medical Center (OPRMC) to ensure a seamless transition that’s convenient and streamlined. 

At OPRMC, you can expect direct access to a pediatric inpatient unit and critical care in a pediatric intensive care unit, if advanced care is needed. All pediatric specialists who care for kids at LSMC, also see and treat kids at OPRMC, so you never have to worry about seeing a different physician or care team.
