Enhanced Access to Specialized Orthopedic Care Coming Spring 2018
As the region’s first and only hospital dedicated exclusively to orthopedics, we recognize the growing need for specialized care with enhanced access, comfort and convenience. To meet that need in our local community, we are expanding our hospital to include more than 22,000 square feet of new space and renovating an additional 32,000 square feet of existing space.
Construction is expected to be complete in spring 2018. When finished, our newly expanded and renovated hospital will include:
- Three new surgical suites (for a total of eight operating rooms)
- All new, modern inpatient rooms (nearly doubling the current number of inpatient rooms)
- Dedicated space for our onsite Ortho Urgent Care center, which will enable us to extend our urgent care hours to include weekdays as well as evenings and weekends
- Expanded clinic space for the onsite orthopedic physician practices
In partnership with Pulse Design Group (a healthcare-specialized architectural firm based in Kansas City) and JE Dunn Construction (a leading provider of construction management services located in Kansas City), we are redesigning our hospital for a more organized, patient-friendly and fully functional layout. The new and renovated space will optimize patient safety and help us maintain our exceptionally clean hospital environment, while also providing improved functionality for our providers and enhancing our five-star patient experience.
Construction is currently underway on the south side of the building. Our hospital will continue to operate at current capacity throughout the expansion project. Leaders at the hospital, as well as the design firm and construction company, have carefully planned the entire expansion and renovation effort to minimize inconvenience for patients, visitors and staff.
We are proud of this project and what it will bring for those who come to us for specialized orthopedic care. Our entire team at Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute is committed to providing advanced level of quality and expertise in orthopedics, and expanding our hospital is an important extension of that commitment.
