Another Corporate Headquarters Announces South Kansas City As Its Home

Saint Luke's Health System (SLHS) announced this week it will consolidate its corporate offices into a single corporate headquarters, to be located at 901 E. 104th St. Kansas City, MO. 64131. This move will represent the first time in the history of the health system that all corporate functions will be located at a single site. 

The new system headquarters will ultimately occupy over 120,000 square feet and will be home to more than 600 employees who now provide shared services to the ten hospitals and ancillary services groups that make up SLHS in the bi-state Kansas City region. SLHS currently employs more than 9,600 people in Missouri and Kansas. The multi-phased move will be timed to maximize efficiency and save costs with departments being relocated as current leases expire. The consolidation is expected to result in more than $5 million of lease costs savings over the next fifteen years.

"This move provides tremendous benefit to the entire health system and the goals and objectives we have set to reduce cost and improve efficiency and collaboration," said Melinda L. Estes, M.D., president and CEO of SLHS. "Health care today requires all of us to be looking to streamline our processes, reduce waste, and enhance collaboration, productivity and communication. This move allows us to do all of those things and I personally am very excited about this next chapter in the history of Saint Luke's Health System."

Approximately 325 employees, including SLHS executive leadership, will move in phase one, which will involve nearly 70,000 square feet of leased space. It is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2014. Departments to be consolidated at the new site include legal, finance and accounting, marketing and public relations, and materials management, among others. 

"The decision to select this particular site was the result of a very deliberate and thoughtful process and we made our selection based on a set of very specific criteria," said Dr. Estes. "It was important to us to affirm our commitment to Kansas City and select an environment and workspace where we could create a true culture of collaboration and enhance our employees work experience."
