Caring is our LEGACY
From our humble beginnings over a century ago to our standing now as the region’s premier academic medical center, our journey is one of continual growth and advancement. Today, we have evolved to become two distinct entities: The University of Kansas Health System and the KU Medical Center (KUMC).
The academic medicine difference
Our structure as an academic medical center allows us to support a truly multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Here, specialists in different medical fields work together to make the right decisions for each patient. Consulting physicians are often across the hall instead of across town. Our physicians are not only faculty members at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, they are also at the forefront of medical discoveries taking place at the University of Kansas Medical Center. Our inspiration is to provide the very best care and service for our patients. With our organization – and especially our teamwork – patients from throughout the region, across the nation and around the world turn to us to receive exceptional, specialized care for complex conditions.
