Hepatitis C Screenings

IF YOU WERE BORN BETWEEN 1945 - 1965 YOU ARE FIVE TIMES MORE LIKELY TO HAVE HEPATITIS C!

Hepatitis C is a potentially life-threatening disease caused by a virus that attacks the liver. It is contracted through blood-to-blood contact with an infected person which can happen in a variety of different ways. Hepatitis C often has no symptoms until it reaches an advanced stage so you may not be aware that you have the disease.

The reason that people born between 1945–1965 have high rates of hepatitis C is not completely understood. The CDC Website reports that most baby boomers are believed to have become infected in the 1960s through the 1980s when transmission of hepatitis C was highest. 

The good news is that all it takes is a blood test to find out if you have Hepatitis C and according to the FDA most cases of Hepatitis C can be cured with a daily combination of pills over a period of just 12 weeks.

FOR A LIMITED TIME, FREE FIRST-TIME HEPATITIS C SCREENINGS ARE AVAILABLE NOW!

Breaking Ground on University Health Community Care Linwood

Community Care LinwoodTruman Medical Centers is thrilled to have ‘officially’ broken ground a unique partnership designed to improve Kansas City’s health and wellness. We are talking about a one-of-a-kind project: a health clinic in a Kansas City YMCA.

University Health at the Linwood Y will be a 7,000-square foot clinic serving YMCA members and those in the surrounding community. Providers at the clinic will be able to refer people to YMCA programs to help them manage their conditions. The goal is to reduce and manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, and high blood pressure to create a healthier, more physically active Kansas City. “I have long said that healthcare shouldn’t just happen within the four walls of a hospital,” said Truman CEO, Charlie Shields. “Truman Medical Centers has been working for years to get out into the community with neighborhood clinics and at grocery stores. But this is the first time we will be providing care in a YMCA.”

Future of Nursing Starts at Truman Medical Centers

Pathways to Nursing Kickoff Event

Truman Medical Centers Nursing Administration is partnering with Community Health Education and the Kansas City Public School District to launch a unique program – Pathways to Nursing.

The purpose of the program is to develop mentorship relationships between high school students enrolled in the CNA program at the KCPS’ Manual Career and Technical School and TMC nurses with hopes of encouraging those students to consider careers in nursing.

The program will serve as a semi-residency program where the students will spend time with their mentors and attend learning sessions focusing on the curriculum they are learning in the classroom paired with career and academic development sessions.

Upon successful completion of the program and with the recommendation of mentors and instructors, students will be offered the opportunity to apply for employment with the Truman Medical Centers.


"Pathways to Nursing serves as an opportunity to grow the future generation of nurses, allows our exceptional nursing team to give back to the community they serve, and introduces promising nursing opportunities to deserving students."

– TMC Chief Nursing Officer Amy Peters
