Help us save more lives
Make a difference in the lives of thousands of patients in Kansas City, the region and beyond. Your gift will help us provide the best care to patients and families today and for years in the future.
Since we became an independent authority in 1998, we have received no state or local tax money (aside from Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements). We operate as a not-for-profit and rely on philanthropy to continue to provide world-class care and service.
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, we fund 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.
