Amid a nationwide physician shortage and escalating healthcare costs, the University of Missouri-Kansas City is rising to the occasion. By providing free dental care and spearheading initiatives through the Health Equity Institute, UMKC is addressing the immediate needs of the community.
The new Healthcare Delivery and Innovation Building will host UMKC School of Medicine simulation labs, providing students with immersive learning experiences that offer a hands-on, collaborative approach to learning. Community clinics within the healthcare hub will offer affordable healthcare including mental health screenings and dental treatments. A step further, collaborative spaces for the biomedical engineering program create a valuable ecosystem for medical advancements.
As the largest capital project in the university’s history, this facility symbolizes UMKC’s commitment to addressing healthcare challenges, fostering innovation, and providing community-focused care.
