University of Kansas Health System acquires competing hospital

Kansas City-based University of Kansas Health System completed the purchase of Great Bend (Kan.) Regional Hospital and its affiliated clinics.

Historically, Great Bend Regional competed for patients and market share with University of Kansas Health System's other hospitals, including Pawnee Valley Community Hospital in Larned, Kan., and Hays (Kan.) Medical Center. The hospitals will now collaborate as part of one system.

"As healthcare across the country evolves, we are taking a new approach in Kansas," said Bob Page, president and CEO of University of Kansas Health System. "Our health system providers in Great Bend, Hays, Larned, Topeka and throughout the Kansas City metro area are keeping care close to home while expanding access to the most advanced treatment options only an academic medical center can provide. Together, we can ensure people in Great Bend and across the state of Kansas have access to the right level of care, delivered in the most effective way."

Great Bend Regional will be renamed University of Kansas Health System Great Bend Campus.
