Cerner's Innovations Campus is officially open

After a ribbon-cutting ceremony on the morning of March 9, Cerner has officially opened its 290-acre Innovations Campus in Kansas City, Mo., according to The Kansas City Star.

The completed first two towers on the campus will house approximately 3,000 Cerner software engineers and support staff. The buildings are complete with a food court, health center, libraries, a game room and various gathering areas for meetings.

But construction isn't over yet. Innovations will grow into a $4.45 billion, 16-building campus that will eventually house 16,000 Cerner employees. Cerner expects the final phase of construction to be complete by 2025.

"We're constantly pushing the boundaries of healthcare," said Cerner COO Mike Nill, according to the report. "Cerner is sitting at a very good place at a very good time. We expect to grow. We're planning to grow."
