today i stopped by ku medical center in kck to see a member of our church family. they are in the midst of a huge addition to the hospital.
not surprising. since we moved to overland park in 1997 every hospital in the kansas city area that hasn't closed has had major additions costing God only knows how many hundreds of millions of dollars. they've also remodeled practically every part of the old buildings, again costing mega bucks. children's mercy has added a southern location, as has st. luke's. both have already had to add additional space.
i just wonder...is there maybe a correlation between the rising cost of healthcare and the seemingly insatiable appetite for expansion of the hospitals?
i'm just saying...
