In order to provide more convenient care and to consolidate a variety of services, the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., is embarking on the development of a new $55 million on-campus medical office building (MOB). The Kansas City, Mo., office of New York-based Turner Construction Co. is the construction manager.
The 175,000 square foot project is slated for completion in 2011, and the university and Turner plan to seek Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Plans call for the future MOB to house 18 clinical departments, including exam, diagnostic and treatment areas, which currently are scattered throughout the campus. It will have six floors, as well as two floors below ground.
