Paw Squad

Having a ruff day? The Paw Squad, available from the Stormont Vail Volunteer team, is here to help! Team members can visit the Paw Squad every Tuesday and Thursday from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Pavilion Lobby inside the Topeka Campus Hospital. Or, they can request a visit with approval from their Director or Charge Nurse.

Quiet Rooms

We know our team faces many challenges and demands on a daily basis and value the need for a quiet space to breathe and be alone. To ensure team members have this opportunity, we created several areas dedicated to quiet reflection throughout the Topeka Campus Hospital.


Wellpower offers team members resources to support physical and emotional wellness, including health coaching, resiliency training, stress management, tobacco cessation program, and more.
