Truman Medical Centers Breaks Ground on Hospital Hill Outpatient Center

Truman Medical Centers (TMC) along with partner organizations, Landmark Healthcare Facilities, Sabates Eye Centers,  University Physician Associates, the National Real Estate Advisors and Regions Bank broke ground today on the state-of-the-art  Hospital Hill Outpatient Center located at 2101 Charlotte, Kansas City, Missouri. 
 
“Today’s ground breaking began the first construction of a free standing TMC building on Hospital Hill since 1998,” said TMC President/CEO John W. Bluford. “TMC has progressively grown over the last decade with outpatient visits reaching nearly 225,000 in the last fiscal year. As the future of healthcare moves toward outpatient and keeping patients out of the hospital, this center positions TMC for the future well.”
 
The $29 million, 90,000 square foot, 4-level outpatient center is part of a Land Clearance Redevelopment Authority urban renewal area and will help consolidate outpatient medical and surgical services into one facility on Hospital Hill. This center will bring current and future patients the highest quality of care, in the best facilities and by the finest medical providers available, thereby advancing healthcare in the region. 
 

“The opening of this new center furthers both Sabates Eye Centers and TMC’s missions of providing accessible healthcare to all Kansas Citians,” said Sabates Eye Centers’ president, chairman of the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s (UMKC) School of Medicine’s Department of Ophthalmology and Vision Research Foundation president, Dr. Nelson Sabates. “We have provided eye care services to Truman patients and trained the next generation of ophthalmologists at UMKC’s School of Medicine for several decades, so it is exciting to have this advanced facility where we can further our research of eye conditions and help everyone see their best.”     
 
Due to open in Summer 2015, the services provided within the Hospital Hill Outpatient Center will include: Sabates Eye Centers, UMKC Vision Research Center, Eye Foundation of Kansas City, an ambulatory surgery center, diagnostic imaging center, physical/speech and occupational therapy, plastic surgery center and medi-spa, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthopaedic Surgery, urology, podiatry, gastroenterology and ear, nose & throat and audiology.  
 
"The new center will be very convenient for our patients, allow our physicians to increase productivity and efficiency, expand services and attract new patients to Hospital Hill," said Dr. Matt Gratton, University Physician Associates Board Chairman.
