2014 Annual Report

The University of Kansas Hospital 2014 Annual Report In the past year, The University of Kansas Hospital has made significant strides toward realizing our vision of leading the nation in caring, healing, teaching and learning.

As a destination center for specialized services, we rank among the nation’s leading hospitals for comprehensive, complex care, surgery and diagnosis. More than one-third of our patients – many of whom are acutely ill – come from outside our region. In addition, the number of patients we admit to the hospital has increased nearly 30 percent in the past five years.

As a regional resource, we expand our services and partner with others to improve care and increase access to innovative services closer to home.

  • We continue enhancing services offered at community locations of The University of Kansas Cancer Center. Clinics across the metro provide convenient access to personalized treatment options, genetic counseling, lymphedema prevention, nurse navigation and more.

  • Through our TeleStroke program, we partner with regional hospitals to provide prompt diagnosis and treatment for patients with stroke symptoms. In addition, through our new Kansas Heart and Stroke Collaborative, we work with other hospitals to improve the well-being of rural Kansans and lower the incidence of stroke and heart attack.

  • The hospital is the official healthcare provider of the Kansas City Royals and Chiefs, Kansas Speedway and Sprint Center. Our Sports Medicine & Performance Center also partners with a growing number of school districts to help young athletes remain healthy and competitive in the sports they love.

  • In an ongoing partnership with Children’s Mercy Hospital, our hospital and physician group coordinate care for pediatric patients. This includes the Survivorship Transition Clinic, which cares for patients 18 years and older with chronic conditions. 

Even with continued expansion and partnerships, our hospital often operates at full capacity. To meet growing demand, we have embarked on plans to build the Cambridge North Tower on our main campus. The 92-bed expansion will allow us to serve more patients who require the type of care only an academic medical center can deliver. It will house our fastest-growing specialties of surgical oncology, neurology and neurosurgery, and ear, nose and throat care.

As a not-for-profit hospital, we strategically reinvest our revenue in facilities, technology and other resources to continue providing world-class care. We receive no state or local funding, so our growth relies on sound fiscal management and private philanthropy. Expanding our facilities and realizing our vision will be possible only through generous support from our community.

Our annual report highlights the ways in which we put the power of academic medicine to work for our patients.
