Birth Care

Our Birth Center, which includes a Level III NICU with private rooms, provides a soothing environment for families to receive state-of-the-art care. We deliver more than 5,000 babies per year and are committed to providing a safe, personalized experience for every mom.

Emergency Care

With more than 70,000 visits each year, our team of doctors and nurses at Shawnee Mission Medical Center and Shawnee Mission Health – Prairie Star have the experience to deal with any emergency. Most walk-in patients see a medical expert in less than 20 minutes, which is just one of the reasons we’re Johnson County’s preferred source for emergency care.

Surgical Care

We are the regional leader in advancing surgical technology, including lasers, robots and minimally invasive procedures. Our center has dedicated suites for open heart, orthopedic, urology, ophthalmology and laparoscopic surgery. We are also home to the Shull Institute for Surgical Robotics, featuring Kansas City’s first da Vinci Surgical System.
