KU Hospital Provides Update on Reorganization

KSAL StaffDecember 19, 2014

The University of Kansas Hospital is making progress toward streamlining clinical operations.

Officials with the medical center and the hospital in Kansas City, Kansas, told the Board of Regents Wednesday the reorganization would make it easier for patients to access care. University of Kansas Hospital spokeswoman Jill Chadwick said Thursday that expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act is important for the hospital to continue to grow.

She says there may be other hospitals in Kansas that might have to cut back services without Medicaid expansion. But she says the University of Kansas Hospital will survive.

A nonprofit group that runs most of the clinics on campus has to negotiate among 18 different organizations. The plan is to combine those under the University of Kansas Hospital Authority.
