Stormont-Vail HealthCare is an integrated health care system serving a 12-county area in northeast Kansas. SVHC was formed with the merger of Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center and Cotton-O’Neil Clinic in 1995. PediatricCare joined the system in 1996. The system also includes Medical Arts Pharmacy, Jane C. Stormont Women’s Health Center, Stormont-Vail Single Day Surgery and Stormont-Vail Foundation.
Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center, located in Topeka, Kan., is a 586-bed acute care center that provides inpatient, outpatient and a variety of community outreach services. Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center is the first and only hospital in its region to use a new cardiovascular digital imaging system in its Cardiac Catheterization Lab and the only hospital in Shawnee County with a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
The second oldest hospital in Kansas, Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center is the product of a merger between Christ’s Hospital (founded in 1884) and the Jane C. Stormont Hospital and Training School for Nurses (1894). It has grown from a four-story hospital to a 586-licensed-bed acute care referral center for northeast Kansas. In the last generation, the health center has continued to serve the community while keeping pace with rapid changes in the health care field. Today, Stormont-Vail provides services not only for hospitalized patients, but also for the growing number of outpatients. These services range from the county’s most specialized level of infant care to a variety of older adult services. Our Medical Imaging Services include computed tomography, diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine and ultrasound. The health center is serviced by an in-house pharmacy 24 hours a day and offers extensive pathology and clinical laboratory services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Stormont-Vail also provides programs and seminars on health-related topics for the community. Health Connections at Stormont-Vail, (785) 354-5225, provides a link to those programs and offers a health information library about general health care topics.
