Belton Regional Medical Center—part of HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s leading healthcare and emergency services provider—announced today that it will expand two areas of the hospital to accommodate increased patient volume. A fourth operating room will be added to the existing state-of-the-art suite that was unveiled two years ago. In addition, the Emergency Room, which has experienced record patient visits over the past year, will receive a second trauma/critical care room and a pneumatic tube system for the efficient transport of lab specimens and medications to and from key locations in the hospital.
The award-winning, full-service 71-bed hospital and Level III Trauma Center is a respected regional source of top-quality, compassionate healthcare for residents of southern Jackson and northern Cass counties. Belton Regional Medical Center celebrated its 30th anniversary on Aug. 22, 2014. The unprecedented expansion is in response to increased healthcare demands as the community continues to grow.
“This expansion recognizes our commitment to and investment in the community’s health and well-being, ensuring an even higher level of care and service,” says Todd Krass, Belton Regional Medical Center Chief Executive Officer. “With the leadership of our physicians, nurses and staff, we are continually elevating a seamless experience for patients and their families, which aligns with our mission of high-quality healthcare in all areas.”
“The residents of southern Jackson and northern Cass counties depend on Belton Regional Medical Center for not only routine needs, such as annual physicals, immunizations and cancer screens, but also for specialized treatments and emergency care, among others,” says Andrew Cusser, M.D., Belton Regional Medical Center Director of Emergency Services. “We are able to stabilize, evaluate and treat everyone who comes through our doors.”
