Not-for-profit status

Since The University of Kansas Health System became an independent authority in 1998, it has received no state or local tax money (aside from Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements). The health system operates as a not-for-profit and relies on philanthropy to continue to provide world-class care and services.

As a not-for-profit, we strategically reinvest our revenue in our facilities, technology and resources that enable us to continue to provide outstanding care in the heart of the Midwest. Although we receive no state appropriations, the health system funds research, education, faculty salaries and new residents through ongoing support for the University of Kansas Medical Center. This support means more top physicians can be recruited and more research can be conducted to discover lifesaving treatments.
