There seems to be support waiting around every corner of North Kansas City Hospital’s 69-acre campus. Whether through their acute care facility, their accredited chest-pain center, a children’s learning center, or a pavilion dedicated to an array of inpatient and outpatient services, the healing center dispenses cures for ailments both big and small. In addition to fixing physical problems, such as a broken bone or a bad haircut, the hospital also offers support in the form of counseling and group fitness classes such as yoga, Zumba, and kickboxing.
On a typical day at the Turner House Children's Clinic, 35–40 children receive care such as physicals, same-day appointments for sick children, or follow-up appointments. The clinic uses a patient-centered home-practice model to ensure that all its patients receive the highest quality of pediatric care possible.
Turner House serves approximately 4,000 patients each year, with services that include preventive and urgent or acute care, prescription-medication programs for uninsured patients, and bilingual staff members to help serve Spanish-speaking families.
