LEAWOOD — Vituity, a leading physician-owned healthcare delivery organization, announced today it has opened a new system support center in Leawood, Kan. in an effort to grow and transform the practice, delivery and business of healthcare in the Kansas City area. A ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening event will take place this summer at the new Vituity office location.
Vituity’s Kansas City area office provides critical systems support for the company’s nationwide operations. The new operation, located in an 8,600-square-foot space at 220 W 89th St. in Leawood, Kan., will create an initial 65 jobs with plans to grow over the next three years.
“It is always a great day when Kansas welcomes a pioneering healthcare service provider such as Vituity to our state,” said Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. “I would like to congratulate Vituity — not only for its continued growth and success but for making a great choice of Leawood for its new system support center. Their choice will not only improve the lives of patients throughout the Greater Kansas City area, but will make a positive impact on the economic vitality of the community and state.”
After nearly 40 years of being known as CEP America, Vituity changed its name in January 2018 to represent its dedication to leading the future of healthcare. The organization is an equitable physician partnership driven by a passion for patient care, a clinical foundation to drive quality performance, change leaders who bring a unique perspective to each hospital, and a comprehensive system of support that impacts care delivery in demonstrable ways.
“We’re thrilled to be part of the leading healthcare industry in Kansas City by opening a new system support center in the area. We are truly fortunate to be supported by the Kansas City Area Development Council and several other local partners to bring our vision for expansion to life,” said Imamu Tomlinson, MD, MBA, chief executive officer of Vituity. “With an integrated, team-based model focused on implementing cost-effective solutions, we are excited to help our healthcare partners throughout the Kansas City region continue to focus on what they do best – improving patient lives.”
“Our Kansas City-based support center will help hospitals, health systems, clinics, payers, and employers improve their financial operations so that providers can focus on what they do best: delivering care,” said Jimmie Proffitt, president and chief operating officer of Vituity Revenue Cycle Management. “This new location signals our continued growth and ongoing commitment to raise the standard of care nationwide.”
Peggy Dunn, Mayor of Leawood, said, “I am pleased to welcome Vituity’s system support center to Leawood and the Greater Kansas City business community. Their focus on support for healthcare providers complements our area’s focus on health. We wish them much success in their new location.”
KCADC was proud to work with a number of regional partners in attracting Vituity to the region, including the Leawood Chamber and Economic Development Council, City of Leawood, Kansas Department of Commerce, Kansas Workforce Partnership, JLL, KCP&L and Kansas Gas Service.
“The Kansas City region is the perfect place for Vituity to call home,” said Tim Cowden, president and CEO, Kansas City Area Development Council. “The Kansas City area already supports an award-winning healthcare industry and major players globally, and I am confident Vituity will experience incredible growth and success in our region.”
