Construction began on the $21 million third floor addition in June and completion is slated for early summer 2018.The new third floor will enhance care for orthopedic, spine and rehab patients and create space for the Lee’s Summit Medical Center’s Maternity Unit.

“This construction project will expand the services we offer to the area,” says Matt Sogard, FACHE, Chief Executive Officer, Lee’s Summit Medical Center. “It not only represents an investment in the high-quality, comprehensive and compassionate care our physicians, nurses and staff offer to patients and their families, it’s also symbolic of our ongoing investment in the health and well-being of the community as its needs grow. We are proud to serve residents with some of the best healthcare in the region and are humbled by the community’s support of our efforts.”
