University of Kansas Health System completes hospital expansion in Overland Park

Published Friday, June 8, 2018 3:00 pm

The University of Kansas Health System has completed a $100 million expansion of its Indian Creek Campus in Overland Park. 

The expansion was fueled by patient demand and the success of the many health system outpatient services, physician offices and surgical services already located in the area. The hospital at 10710 Nall Avenue has tripled in size with the addition of more than 122,000 square-feet of space in three stories. A fourth level can be added to accommodate expected growth. 

Within the expanded physical space, The University of Kansas Health System now has room to grow inpatient volume and hire more staff.  

“This exciting growth marks The University of Kansas Health System’s commitment to Johnson County and its population needs,” said Tammy Peterman, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Nursing Officer. “What we’ve built will better meet the needs of our patients today, and more importantly, anticipate the needs of our patients of tomorrow.” 

The expansion includes space for The Women’s Cancer Center at The University of Kansas Cancer Center with state-of-the-art breast imaging equipment and services to be used by The Women’s Cancer Center team. Within this multidisciplinary outpatient clinic is an expert team of physicians and specialists, consisting of breast surgical oncologists, breast medical oncologists, breast reconstruction (plastic) surgeons, gynecological oncologists, support services, genetic counselors and a high risk clinic. The fellowship-trained physicians work together to treat women’s cancers with personalized care plans so that each patient – whether they have had cancer, are fighting cancer or are at high-risk for cancer – receives individualized attention and the right treatment. 

The expansion also includes one of only two interventional radiology fluoroscopy machines in the United States using artificial intelligence. The imaging machine can come to the patient, providing a more comprehensive scan and will be used for many different types of imagery.
