Wesley Medical Center
Wesley Medical Center, Wichita’s largest medical campus, has counted on Key Construction to complete its most difficult tasks in construction for more than 27 years. The Key team has successfully completed more than 850 projects totaling more than $100 million for Wesley. Our team members are well versed in the issues of interim life safety and in the critical importance of infection control. All buildings remain occupied throughout the construction process.

Wesley Birth Care Renovation
The renovation was a year-long, four-phase interior renovation project that included all 20 LDRP patient rooms, nurse stations, reception, conference rooms, public restrooms, lobby, offices and corridors. The renovation included altering the LDRP room layout and new head and foot wall configurations to accommodate new equipment, casework and Murphy beds. Lincor touch screen monitors were among the amenities added to the LDRP rooms to enhance the patient’s experience. The restrooms within the LDRP patient rooms were remodeled as well, to include new whirlpool tubs with solid surface surrounds along with new tile and plumbing fixtures. Barn doors were installed to replace the restroom swinging doors to achieve more open floor space within the patient rooms. The Center remained open during construction.
Wesley Cath Lab
The 3,752-square-foot renovation project included the entire Cardiovascular Department inside Wesley Medical Center.
The original start date was delayed, and Key Construction managed to complete the construction work in conjunction with Philips equipment installation in order to meet the owner’s original patient application dates. This fast-track project was completed in 20 weeks, while everything just outside of the Cardiovascular Department remained operational.
The renovation included three cath labs and control rooms, a supply room, soiled linen, locker room, and offices. The cath lab equipment was supplied by Philips and included an Allura FD10 floor mount, Allura FD20 ceiling mount and Allura Biplane FD10 systems. These systems required minimum clearances of +/- 0”, which was difficult to achieve in an early 1900s structure, but the entire team worked continuously to find solutions to the extraordinary space constraints.
This fast-track renovation project was completed in 28 weeks. Key Construction remodeled existing patient rooms into a new Endoscopy Suite that includes six procedure rooms (two of which have NuBooms), three clean rooms, three decon rooms, pre/post-op, an isolation room, two locker rooms, three restrooms, a soiled utility room, a clean utility room, a nurse station, a break room and an X-ray Room.
The space received a new air handling unit and structural steel to support it on the adjacent roof. The renovation also included new electrical, HVAC, plumbing, medical gas, nurse call, code blue and fire alarm systems. The existing fire sprinkler system was reworked to accommodate the new layout.
Finishes consist of welded seam/flash coved sheet-vinyl floors, ceramic tile, VCT, rubber base, epoxy paint, metal and plastic laminate cabinets, solid surface and stainless-steel countertops, new IV and cubicle curtain track, IPC wall protection, plastic laminate and stainless-steel doors and new door hardware (access control and operators).
Key and its subcontractors were required to follow stringent ICRA and ILS requirements and completed work in an operating hospital environment.
The Varian Edge Radiosurgery System offers stereotactic cancer-treatment technology, which allows surgeons to deliver a targeted radiation dose to a tumor using minimally invasive procedures. A complete renovation of the former linear accelerator space was completed to add this new equipment. As is usual, when working in a medical facility, work was coordinated and scheduled around the medical staff and surgical schedules.
Wesley ER Addition/Renovation and 4 Tower Renovation
The ER addition and renovation was built in a very active hospital ER with limited site access. Interim Life Safety and emergency responders’ access was literally changed and maintained daily. The multi-phased interior renovation was very challenging as well, with a stringent Infection Control plan and patient safety at the top of the list. Key Construction worked multiple shifts to achieve project goals and schedules.
The 4 Tower Patient Room Renovations were completed over a two-year period, with all new finishes and ADA upgrades throughout. Understanding the importance of patient safety, infection control and interim life safety, we were able to meet all project goals. Coordination with hospital staff required daily owner and contractor meetings.
Wesley Hybrid Operating Room
Completed in 2014 as part of a multiple operating room renovation at Wesley Medical Center, the Hybrid Operating Room was the first at this facility. Merging minimally invasive and traditional surgery with the latest imaging technology, physicians use real-time intra-operative image guidance to perform minimally invasive procedures and open surgical cases.
As is usual, when working in a medical facility, work was coordinated and scheduled around the medical staff and surgical schedules to keep everything operational.
