Olathe Medical Center

Olathe, Kansas

The design for OMC’s new OB-NICU expansion emphasizes the expression of the campus as a place of healing. Vireo’s primary goal was to create a landscape that is healing, nurturing, and sustainable. While the design also reinforces OMC’s status as a cutting-edge facility, a message of compassion and care is ingrained into every aspect.

Spaces throughout the campus were designed to support comfort, ease of use, healing and emotional restoration. This is accomplished by staging views to the outside, arranging garden elements, and using pathways to captivate and engage. Above all, the outdoor healing spaces facilitate an interaction with nature and create a positive distraction for all users.
