PCEDC Staff News


North Kansas City Hospital has been a member of the Platte County EDC since its inception in 1988. Over the years, several hospital executives have supported the EDC’s efforts by serving in a leadership capacity within the organization. NKCH welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with EDC members and other Northland organizations to make the community a healthier place to live, work and raise a family.

For more than half a century, North Kansas City Hospital has been the Northland’s preferred healthcare provider. It serves the community with 451 licensed beds, more than 3,000 employees, and 520 physicians representing 46 medical specialties. From a Level III neonatal intensive care unit to home health and hospice services, NKCH provides a lifetime of care.

The hospital offers award-winning cardiovascular and orthopedic programs and advanced cancer treatment options, including world-class care through a partnership with the region’s only National Cancer Institute-designated program. It is the first Northland hospital to perform the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedure, an innovative approach to treating people in need of a heart valve replacement.

Through its Meritas Health subsidiary, North Kansas City Hospital offers the largest network of physician practices in the Northland, with 135 physicians and advanced practitioners in 30 convenient locations, including express care clinics in the Liberty and Gladstone Hy-Vee stores, with more planned.

The hospital’s mission, vision and values reflect a strong commitment to the health and well-being of the Northland community and beyond. Last year, NKCH sponsored 60 charitable and community organizations and served more than 24,000 people through its dynamic Community Health & Wellness programs.
