Toby's Take

You may think you know The University of Kansas Health System, but there's more to us than meets the eye. Our director of public relations, Toby Cook, is new to the world of healthcare, and has made it his mission to find what goes into being the Best Hospital in Kansas City and Kansas. Each week in Toby's Take, he'll share an inside look at healthcare and community at The University of Kansas Health System, and you're invited to go along on the journey.

I’ve seen firsthand how the people behind the logo are touching lives in ways most may never see. As a former reporter, I plan to use my experience to share stories about the people who make this place essential to the health, wellbeing and pride of a community.

Our brains are miraculous but sometimes, they need help. Mental and physical health are not separate and our behavioral health team does an incredible job of addressing patients with mental health needs throughout treatment plans across the spectrum of what we do.
