Cystic Fibrosis

We are a nationally accredited cystic fibrosis care center that cares for both adult and pediatric patients. The adult cystic fibrosis center was founded in 1993 and 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. The pediatric cystic fibrosis center has cared for patients for over 30 years and is passionate about providing patients the most comprehensive and aggressive preventive care possible. We take a highly personalized approach and will partner with you for the care of your child. We work from a philosophy that maintaining excellent health as a young patient affords the best opportunity for longevity, better quality of life and opportunities to benefit from new therapeutic discoveries emerging from CF research.

Our mission

To grow old with our patients by providing outstanding patient care, educating family, patients and the community regarding cystic fibrosis management and looking for the treatments of tomorrow by participating in scientific research today.
