About The University of Kansas Hospital

At The University of Kansas Hospital, the region's premier academic medical center, specialists in more than 200 medical fields provide patients the most comprehensive diagnostic and treatment options available, even for the most complex conditions. Specialty programs include heart and heart surgery, cancer, neurosciences and stroke, orthopedics, organ transplant, trauma and burn, and neonatal intensive care.

For six consecutive years, the hospital has been recognized among the nation's top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. The hospital has also led all Kansas City area hospitals in providing benefit to the community for five consecutive years. Because the hospital receives no state or federal appropriations, it relies on contributions from philanthropic support to help build patient care programs, provide medications for patients in need, purchase advanced medical technology and more.
