Our History & Ownership
Recognizing an unmet need in the region for a specialty hospital dedicated exclusively to orthopedics, in 1998 several of Kansas City’s leading orthopedic surgeons came together with Saint Luke’s Health System to create Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute. Our hospital officially opened its doors in January 2000, and today, we remain the area’s only dedicated orthopedic hospital, providing an advanced level of quality and expertise in orthopedic patient care.
Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute is an acute care hospital licensed in the state of Kansas. Our hospital is physician-owned, which means many of the physicians on staff have ownership or financial interest in the hospital. This model allows our physicians to have greater control in all aspects of the orthopedic care they provide, which often leads to greater patient satisfaction. As a physician-owned hospital, we are a proud member of Physician Hospitals of America.
Located near I-435 and State Line Road, Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute combines convenience with orthopedic excellence for patients in Leawood, Overland Park, Lenexa, Lee’s Summit and other surrounding areas in the Kansas City metro.
