Jan. 28, 2018– Lee’s Summit, MO — Interior work is well underway for Lee’s Summit Medical Center’s $21 million tower expansion, with completion expected in May.

The project includes a new 25,000-square foot center for orthopedic, spine and rehab patients on the third floor, plus a new 12,000-square foot labor and delivery unit on the second floor. 

Rooms on the third floor are designed and constructed with the needs of total joint replacement patients in mind, according to Lee’s Summit Medical Center President and CEO Matt Sogard.

“Lee’s Summit Medical Center is the leading joint replacement location in the area, and now we will have the space to better handle the growing volume of patients,” Sogard said.

The fully renovated second floor maternity unit is due next summer and will include the latest labor and delivery amenities and technology. Sogard said the renovation will help Lee’s Summit Medical Center respond to the community’s need for a modern maternity unit.

“The growth in Lee’s Summit is significant, and our patient satisfaction scores are very high,” Sogard said. “The ability to deliver babies here is long overdue.”

Project partners include JE Dunn, general contractor; Henderson Engineers, general engineering; MMC Contractors, mechanical engineering; and Faith Technologies, electrical engineering.
