The second oldest hospital in Kansas, Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center is the product of a merger between Christ's Hospital (founded in 1884) and the Jane C. Stormont Hospital and Training School for Nurses (1894). It has grown from a four-story hospital to a 586-bed acute care referral center for northeast Kansas. In the last generation, the health center has continued to serve the community while keeping pace with rapid changes in the health care field. Today, Stormont-Vail provides services not only for hospitalized patients, but for the growing number of outpatients. These services range from the county's most specialized level of infant care to a variety of older adult services. Our Medical Imaging Services include computerized tomography, diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, and ultrasound. The health center is serviced by an in-house pharmacy 24-hours a day and offers extensive pathology and clinical laboratory services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Stormont-Vail provides programs and seminars on health-related topics for the community.
