About Great Bend Campus
In August 2018, Great Bend Regional Hospital and its affiliated clinics, including Central Kansas Family Practice and Heartland Regional, joined The University of Kansas Health System. These services are located on what is now referred to as The University of Kansas Health System Great Bend Campus.
As a part of the health system, care providers are expanding access to healthcare options and services for the community. Physicians and medical professionals at the Great Bend Campus practice medicine with the latest technology and provide quality care in a comfortable and patient-focused environment.
We are committed to delivering quality patient care. We do this through a team of trained physicians, nurses and other professionals who focus on patients first and work collaboratively to provide the best care possible. We support our staff by providing them with professional and personal development opportunities within the workplace. We also support their health and well-being, encouraging a good work-life balance while they serve our community each day through a culture of caring.
In 2001, the hospital began providing services as the Surgical and Diagnostic Center of Great Bend. When it opened, the facility had two operating rooms, one procedure room and four inpatient beds. In 2005, the procedure room was converted into an additional operating room and five more inpatient beds were added. This expansion also included an outpatient imaging center.
In July 2009, Great Bend Regional Hospital took a huge step by becoming the first and only physician-owned community hospital in the United States. This change expanded healthcare options for people in Great Bend and surrounding communities.
Keeping care close to home
When people get their healthcare close to home, they can focus on healing rather than the many stresses of travel. That's why we support keeping care close to home.
We do this by supporting the continued operation of hospitals and clinics and by expanding into communities across Kansas.
The University of Kansas Health System is the region’s only academic health system. In addition to hospital and clinic locations in Kansas City, the health system includes: HaysMed in Hays, Pawnee Valley Campus in Larned, St. Francis Campus in Topeka, and multiple locations in Great Bend, including St. Rose Medical Pavilion.
