A Note for Referring Providers

Stormont Vail Health is a nonprofit health care system with the largest multi-specialty group in eastern Kansas, Cotton O’Neil. We offer certain specialty services not otherwise available in the region. At Stormont Vail Health, we approach our work with a hometown advantage. We forge close relationships with referring hospitals, physicians and other health care workers, staying in touch with their needs and concerns.

Network Development & Regional Relations

Network Development & Regional Relations connects Stormont Vail Health and other medical providers and health care organizations throughout eastern Kansas.

The department builds awareness of the broad array of health care services available at Stormont Vail and Cotton O’Neil. We also provide important updates for the integrated health care delivery system. This includes information related to emergent and non-emergent patient transfers, specialty services, professional education and resources for patients and families.
