Elite Sports brings Pediatric Partners to Olathe as major feature of new, multi-sport facility for youth athletes and the public

Pediatric Partners’ 6,000-square-foot location inside Elite Sports Mall opens late-fall 2018 with on-site pediatric services

OLATHE, Kan. (Aug. 17, 2018) – The Olathe-based sports development and management company, Elite Sports, is excited to include a local, full-service pediatric clinic in its new, multi-sport facility. Pediatric Partners, P.A., will open its second Kansas location at Elite Sports Mall in Olathe, featuring a full-service pediatric clinic open to both youth athletes and the public.


“Elite Sports is fully committed to exceeding the needs of youth athletes and their families, both on and off the playing field,” said Jason Bryson, CEO of Elite Sports. “Bringing Pediatric Partners to our new facility is just another example of how Elite Sports is changing the game change and offering amenities unlike any other multi-sport center in the metro,” Bryson said. 


The new Pediatric Partners location will occupy more than 6,000 square feet inside Elite Sports’ 250,000-square-foot Olathe facility and feature 20 exam rooms. Services will mirror those offered at their Overland Park location and encompass well care, sick care including minor trauma, behavior management, and preventative health with special emphasis on sports nutrition and injury prevention for youth athletes. Walk-in appointments will be available.


“As a pediatrician, one of the healthy habits that I often encourage is to be active on a daily basis,” said Dr. Jennifer Mellick, managing partner of Pediatric Partners. “Sports have long been shown to improve the health of children, both physically and mentally – it’s a privilege to partner with Elite Sports because they understand that focusing on the health of the athlete is more important than winning games,” Mellick said.


Dr. Jennifer Mellick and Dr. Carissa Stanton will attend full time at the Olathe location with Dr. Peter Carter and Dr. Susan Ratliff offering appointments several days a week. The full-service pediatric clinic will accept new patients and add a convenient option for current patients. With records available at both locations simultaneously, patients will have the option to visit either Pediatric Partners’ location and enjoy seamless coordinated care.  


Pediatric Partners is excepted to open with Elite Sports Mall late-fall of 2018 at 2115 E. Kansas City Road, Olathe, KS 66061.
