New Wichita Children’s Hospital

This past year, KVC Hospitals admitted more than 3,000 youth to our psychiatric treatment centers, including children from almost all counties in Kansas. More than 800 of those kids and their families had to travel 3 or more hours from Sedgwick County and surrounding areas to receive inpatient acute treatment at our Kansas City or Hays facilities.

In response to this overwhelming demand for more access to emergency psychiatric care, we opened an acute treatment center in Wichita, KS.

Children’s Psychiatric Treatment

This new hospital provides a modern, safe, and child-friendly environment that encourages positive interactions and creativity. Recreation features include a gym and indoor and outdoor activity spaces to allow kids to be kids while receiving treatment. Families can visit their child and spend time together in a comfortable, private family room and for families who live out of town, we can use tele-video equipment for a virtual visit. Click here to learn more about our inpatient acute treatment.

We accept Missouri and Kansas Medicaid plans and most private insurance plans.
