Details About Our Highlighted Project: The Birth Place at Olathe Medical Center

Olathe Medical Center (OMC), a part of Olathe Health, is a five-story acute care facility located in Olathe, Kansas. The existing acute care facility advocates the need to stay ahead of the community’s growing needs when it comes to providing quality healthcare.

Designed by HMN Architects and built by JE Dunn Construction, the new 109,000 square-foot four-story obstetrics tower, called The Birth Place, opened in May 2017. The design provides a major enhancement to OMC with a new level II Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) service, as well as growth for the Obstetrics (OB) Department.

In addition to obstetrics, the expansion provided OMC with a new main entrance lobby, cafeteria, dining area, bistro, and a baby boutique. The new tower provides a new identify to the Olathe Medical Center campus.

The primary goal for the new OB/NICU unit was to provide new moms and families with a comfortable and soothing experience. All patient rooms offer a hotel-like environment, taking advantage of the full glass skin allowing ample light and views.

The building’s structure is designed to allow for three additional floors, providing the hospital with flexibility for future growth, as they become a true healthcare leader in the community.
