Our Mission

Studies have shown that patients treated in specialty hospitals are likely to have better outcomes, lower infection rates, better inter-hospital communication and patient satisfaction, and shorter lengths of stay. Hospital data collected by the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and CareChex® – an information service of Quantros, Inc., ranks Kansas Spine in the upper echelon of categories most important to patients.

Our ultimate mission is to help our patients return to their highest possible range of mobility and the activities they most enjoy. With this mission in mind, we strive to be an industry leader in spinal treatment, education, and research and development. Kansas Spine is a 100% physician-owned hospital, so our physicians are uniquely motivated toward the success of their patients.
