Hospital Expansion

Enhanced Access to Specialized Orthopedic Care

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 on our new wing was completed in spring 2018. 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 to renovate our existing space on the north 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. A photo from our groundbreaking is available below. To follow along on our journey of expansion, find us on Facebook – we will share new photos of our progress as we reach new milestones along the way. If you are a patient, referring provider, hospital visitor or any other member of our community who wants to know more about our hospital expansion and renovation, please call 913-319-7633.
