Why Join Us

Twenty years ago, our hospital was in critical condition. We could not invest in the technology and resources we needed, employee turnover was high and public perception was low. That year, The University of Kansas Hospital was established as an independent hospital authority and our transformational journey began. And just as we knew we had the ability to change our patients' lives, we believed we could change our destiny, too.

We didn’t just get better. We got great.

National reputation for excellence

Today, our health system has a national reputation for doing things right, and we are rated among the country’s top hospitals in quality and the patient experience.
