UPDATE 04/22/2015: We have WONDERFUL news!!! KDHE signed the Order Lifting Suspension today! Our case has been dismissed and the Birth and Women’s Center is now fully reinstated.
In order to become reinstated with KDHE, it was necessary for us to obtain a transfer agreement with a Topeka based medical care facility. Stormont Vail’s malpractice insurance would not allow them to enter into a transfer agreement with the Birth and Women’s Center if we continued to offer VBAC.
We are grateful to once again be able to offer care to expecting mothers in Topeka and the surrounding area, and will do our best to help mothers seeking VBAC find another provider to assist them with the birth experience they seek.
