Cerner, a Missouri-based health care information technology company, announced plans to expand their North Kansas City headquarters campus. The new expansion comes as Cerner is working to complete a $4.45 billion expansion in the south Kansas City area, which is being hailed as Cerner’s Innovation Campus, and is expected to house nearly 16,000 employees when completed.
The $35 million North Kansas City expansion is centered around a four-story 125,000 sq. ft. demonstration center, which will be used by both existing and potential clients.
“Cerner’s success continues to reflect its growth in the Kansas City area,” said Cerner spokeswoman Victoria Rosengarten. “This expansion will serve as an additional avenue to highlight our solutions, emphasize our mission and reflect our culture.”
Missouri’s bioscience industry employs approximately 50,000 highly skilled individuals within more than 3,500 companies, and Missouri is home to some of the most prestigious hospitals, medical schools and health companies in the world.
Combine all this with our competitive business costs, low corporate tax rate, available talent and focus on risk reduction for companies, and you begin to see why Missouri is a leader in health innovation.
