Specialized OB Emergency Services

A health emergency during pregnancy requires a special level of care. That’s why AdventHealth Shawnee Mission Birth Center has an Obstetric Emergency Department (OB ED) equipped to treat expectant mothers 20+ weeks gestation and their babies.

AdventHealth’s OB ED is staffed round the clock with experienced OB physicians, Certified Nurse Midwives and registered nurses. The OB ED treats pregnancy- and postpartum-related concerns, giving pregnant women immediate access to a provider at all hours. From OB ED, moms are admitted to the Birth Center for inpatient care, including birth, or discharged with guidance on next steps. It’s our way to ensure moms and babies are safe through every step of pregnancy and beyond.
