HCA Midwest Health System is expanding its presence in the Kansas City metro by tapping into another of the top surgery centers in the area. The 15,000-square-foot center, which opened in 1999, is the only freestanding ambulatory surgery center in Kansas City, Kan.
The health system, which has a 51 percent stake in the Kansas City, Kan., center, has purchased a majority stake from Heart of America Surgery Center LLC. and Kansas City Specialty Physicians LLC.
Keith Cambers, vice president of operations at HCA, said he hopes the deal sends a message regarding potential deals with other physicians groups.
