Nearly all services resume for clinics at KU Hospital

The University of Kansas Hospital was able to perform 36 surgeries today on its main campus and patient care teams stayed overnight or braved the elements to perform their duties.

The hospital cared for more than 500 inpatients during the storm.

The surgeries included:
  • a live donor kidney transplant;
  • cancer brain surgery where the patient flew in from Liberal, Kansas to be at the hospital; and
  • cancer chemotherapy treatments for a variety of cancers. 

Regular clinics resume tonight with all Urgent Care clinics open in Westwood, Gladstone, Kansas City, Kansas and KU MedWest in Shawnee.

On Wednesday, the clinics of The University of Kansas Hospital and The University of Kansas Physicians will be open with the following exceptions:
  • pediatrics will remain closed on the main campus and in Prairie Village;
  • the cardiology clinic in Grandview will remain closed; and
  • the Orthopedics Clinic will open at 11 a.m.
The research and education offices of The University of Kansas Medical Center will be closed again on Wednesday.
