Birth Center Seeks To Reopen

KSAL StaffMarch 16, 2015

A suspended Topeka birthing center is in talks with two hospitals as it seeks to reopen.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment suspended the Topeka Birth and Women’s Center last month. A report found, among other things, that it was placing women at unnecessary risk.

The center says just one issue hasn’t been addressed. Neither Stormont-Vail Hospital nor St. Francis Health has signed an agreement to take transfer patients from the center. Office manager Kelly Greene says that piece is required for the center to get back to deliveries.

Representatives from both hospitals on Friday said they were considering the transfer agreements, but had yet to reach a decision.
