The adult cystic fibrosis clinic was founded in 1993 and was accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation shortly thereafter in 1996. Starting from the ground up, we have built a program of excellence that is focused on patient care. We have grown to become one of the largest adult centers in the Midwest region. We are the only adult center in the Kansas City metropolitan area and we serve an extensive patient population in western Missouri and eastern Kansas.
Patients at our adult CF clinic are given a mask to wear in community areas upon checking in at the front desk. Once checked in, a nurse takes each patient's weight and height, and escorts them to a private room where vital signs are obtained. Each patient will see each CF team member at every visit if time allows and/or if they have special needs to address with that provider. Clinic visits usually last 60-90 minutes at a time.
