Funding for new patient building

Share this story

The University of Kansas Hospital has secured some major philanthropic support for a new patient building at its Kansas City, Kan., campus.

In a news release, the hospital said donors have pledged large gifts toward the new building. The hospital owns about 14 acres at the northwest corner of 39th Street and State Line Road, which it purchased in 2005 for future expansion.

Hospital executives, civic leaders and foundation representatives had planned to discuss the project and its funding at a news conference Monday. The hospital postponed the announcement about 90 minutes before the scheduled news conference, citing “last minute travel complications.” The hospital did not set a new date.

According to the news release, the hospital has experienced “substantial growth” in inpatients and surgeries.

“While there has been no formal announcement of a new building project,” the news release said, “private briefings with key audiences have led to support for the project.”

Major Funding for Health coverage on KCPT provided by Assurant Employee Benefits and the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City.
