2017 brings KU Hospital, Hays Medical Center partnership into effect

The partnership between Kansas City-based The University of Kansas Hospital and Hays (Kan.) Medical Center took effect Jan. 1, reports The Kansas City Star.

Under the partnership, John Jeter, MD, remains CEO of Hays and Bob Page remains president and CEO of KU Hospital. All staff will remain at their current facilities.

Additionally, KU Hospital, an independently governed public authority, and Hays, a nonprofit hospital, are now consolidating their financial statements, according to the report.

An operations council comprised of members from both hospitals has been created to direct the partnership, and boards at both facilities will remain intact. The hospitals said new branding and signs will be revealed in the coming weeks, according to the report.

KU Hospital and HaysMed announced the intended partnership last September.
