A multispecialty approach to care
As part of Overland Park Regional Medical Center’s Pediatric Center, we approach each child’s care with an overall view of his or her health. This means frequent collaboration across specialties. Many of our youngest patients, born in Overland Park Regional Medical Center’s level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) have multiple issues, often diagnosed by our specialists even before birth. This allows our neurology team to do maternal-fetal consults, meeting Mom and Dad even before their baby is born, and working closely with NICU professionals to ensure the best possible arrival and care for these little ones. Our pediatric ER, is Johnson County’s only ER to include a pediatric intensive care unit (PICU).
Our pediatric neurologists offers experience and expertise spanning neurology. With experience in caring for patients of all ages—in utero through teen years—our pediatric neurologists ensures a strong continuum of care for children as they grow and older teens as they move from pediatric to adult neurology.
