Indian Creek Campus Now Open
KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The University of Kansas Hospital, as a response to growing patient volume, has officially opened its new surgical facility in southern Johnson County, Kansas.
The location, at Nall Avenue and Indian Creek Parkway, just north of I-435, is now The University of Kansas Hospital - Indian Creek Campus. The 42,000-square-foot facility has seven operating rooms and 19 inpatient beds. The two-floor facility also has diagnostic imaging equipment.
Six inpatient specialties will be offered in the new location: Orthopedic Surgery, Plastic Surgery, General Surgery, Interventional Radiology, Urology and Pain Management.
In addition to the inpatient facility, two new satellite clinic locations will open on the Campus – the Center for Sports Medicine and the Marc A. Asher, MD Comprehensive Spine Center. Those outpatient services, which are extensions of clinics on the main campus, are slated to open July 30.
“Our goal is to provide access to patients who need our specialty services,” said Bob Page, president and chief executive officer of The University of Kansas Hospital. “This campus provides our physicians, nurses and other hospital staff additional facilities to provide the best in care to patients.”
Several hospital-owned and physician-related offices are located in the area, including Mid-America Cardiology, Medical Plaza Internal Medicine and The University of Kansas Physician’s Women’s Special Center for obstetrics and gynecology.
No jobs were lost in the transaction and the vast majority of employees of the former Heartland Surgical Specialty Hospital are now employees of The University of Kansas Hospital.
The Indian Creek Campus is just one initiative to deal with the growth in patient volume. This summer, three new patient floors will open in the Center for Advanced Heart Care and six new operating rooms will open in the main hospital.
