CREATION Health is the belief that optimal health depends on the vitality of body, mind, and spirit. By embracing this whole-person
care approach, Shawnee Mission Health (SMH) is compelled to improve the patient experience and workplace culture.

SMH created a team to identify priority areas to enhance department efficiencies, improve staff, enrich patient outlook, and maximize facility performance. Their plan began with relocating and modernizing Central Processing, originally located in the heart of the hospital, and replacing it with Harvest Kitchen and dining. The existing servery and dining was converted into a state-of-theart conference center for training and community education.

Multiple complex systems containing aging equipment passed through all the project areas. This required careful planning from the project team to maintain critical operation in the design and construction of the new spaces. Each obstacle was an opportunity to preserve the goals of the project—to bring the vision of CREATION Health to life.
