Facts About the Hospital

Founded in 1958 as an 80-bed facility in North Kansas City, MO, North Kansas City Hospital continues to expand to meet the needs of our growing community. Now with 451 beds and a 69-acre campus on Armour Road just east of I-35, we provide a host of inpatient and outpatient services, in a state-of-the-art facility, to improve the health of our patients - and our community.

A leader in high technology and excellent care, North Kansas City Hospital was one of the first hospitals in the country to implement a cardiac hospice program, PACS (a fully-integrated filmless radiology system), and a pharmacy “robot” which stores, retrieves and dispenses medication. We have a Trilogy Linear Accelerator with Calypso and the daVinci surgical robotic system.
