****Size of Hospital:
For more than a century, Wesley Medical Center has served Wichita and the surrounding area with expert, compassionate care. But now, as Wesley Healthcare, we’re serving our patients even better.
Wesley recently opened Wesley Children’s Hospital, the only dedicated pediatric hospital in Wichita and the surrounding region. Our Wesley EmergencyCare Network, already providing the most comprehensive ER services in Wichita and home to the region’s only pediatric ER, just expanded its network with a new free-standing ER in Derby. Plus, we completed a $36 million renovation of our Women’s Hospital – another reason we’re known as the region’s “Baby Hospital.”
Our investment in these new facilities means we can continue to improve our ability to fulfill our community’s healthcare needs by giving you, the patient, greater access to our exceptional physicians and surgeons.
As you navigate our website, you will have the opportunity to review our full-range of acute care services provided by expert physicians at our main campus, Wesley Woodlawn Hospital & ER (formerly known as Galichia Heart Hospital), WesleyCare Clinics and our free-standing emergency rooms.
As a result of our expansion to better serve our community, we came up with a new name to describe this comprehensive network of services: Wesley Healthcare.
With so many exciting changes, it’s also important to confirm the things that will remain. Our outstanding team of physicians, nurses and caregivers will continue to provide the premium care for the greater Wichita community that you have come to expect from our hospitals and clinics. Wesley will always be your expert choice for any healthcare need, with a focus not only on quality medicine, but also on the highest service to you and your family.
Our commitment remains – we will ensure the highest quality health care by providing compassion, offering comfort and building trust. Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
