Founded in 1874 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Joseph
Medical Center has a long tradition of providing high quality, compassionate
care. Its Catholic heritage and the spirit of our founding Sisters continue
today in our mission of caring for the community. The Diocese of Kansas
City-St. Joseph is the Catholic Sponsor for St. Joseph Medical Center,
under the leadership of his Excellency Bishop James V. Johnston, Jr.
St. Joseph has proven it is among an elite group of providers in treatment
for time critical diagnosis and has earned the Gold-Plus Quality Achievement
Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association
for the treatment of stroke patients. It is also the first hospital in
Kansas City to launch a comprehensive Senior Care service line including
a senior friendly emergency room, senior focused inpatient program, an
outpatient senior clinic that focuses on healthy aging as well as a preferred
skilled nursing and assisted living network so if the need should arise,
our seniors are well versed on quality options in our area.
The Breast Center at St. Joseph has earned recognition by the National
Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and Breast Imaging Center of
Excellence designation from the American College of Radiology (ACR).
St. Joseph is a Joint Commission accredited, 310-bed acute care facility
providing a wide range of services, including 24-hour Emergency Department,
Joint and Spine Institute, surgical services, and outpatient services.
