The University of Kansas Health System recently opened the newly expanded Indian Creek Campus, located in Overland Park, Kansas. The 122,000-square-foot expansion tripled the size of the existing campus by adding 34 private patient rooms, 24 exam rooms and eight operating rooms that connect to the pre-existing surgical building. The Indian Creek Campus offers surgery, clinical care, inpatient and outpatient pharmacy services, radiology and support services. The campus now meets the patient demand and the success of the many health system outpatient services, physician offices and surgical services already located in the area, as well as a central location for women’s oncology.
The design team collaborated with the hospital’s executive and strategic planning teams to determine the short- and long-term goals for this facility, with a focus on providing the health system room to grow inpatient value and hire more staff. As the need for oncology services increases over the years, the design team and The University of Kansas Health System worked to ensure the facility could adapt and manage the influx of patients.
The design includes the flexibility to add a 25,000-square-foot floor to accommodate future growth. The Indian Creek Campus expansion design aesthetic follows the common theme across The University of Kansas Health System. A major feature of the Indian Creek Campus is the two-story atrium where a large chandelier of ring light fixtures is displayed along the grand staircase.
The project team included Colliers International, JE Dunn Construction, Pulse Design Group, Davidson Architecture, Brack and Associates, Henderson Engineers, Bob D. Campbell and Verio.
