Hammes broke ground on a new multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center in Lee’s Summit, Missouri.

Milwaukee, WI, October 5, 2023 – Hammes, a nationally recognized leader in healthcare development, broke ground on a new ambulatory surgery center in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City. The new ambulatory surgery center is being developed on behalf of HCA Midwest Health, the region’s premier healthcare leader and a part of HCA Healthcare, in collaboration with 16 physician partners.

Hammes is serving as the developer for the new multi-specialty surgery center, which will include orthopedic, spine, gastroenterology, general surgery and ancillary services. The 18,800-square-foot facility is expected to open in late 2024. Project partners include ACI Boland Architects and JE Dunn Construction.

The new surgery center, located on the campus of Lee’s Summit Medical Center, will help meet the needs of the growing community southeast of Kansas City with the opportunity for increased access and convenience for patients to receive care in an outpatient setting.

“HCA Healthcare is pleased to partner with Hammes on another state-of-the art surgery center,” said Rebecca Eckhoff, Vice President of Operations for the HCA Healthcare’s HCA Midwest Health Ambulatory Surgery Division. “The services offered at this new facility will further enhance the quality and convenience of outpatient care in our community.”

“We are proud of the development partnership we have established with HCA Healthcare and numerous physician partners,” said Justin Shea, Principal of Hammes Partners. “We look forward to successfully delivering this facility that will benefit both patients and providers.”

Hammes is currently developing another ambulatory surgery center in Kansas City in partnership with HCA, the Blue River Surgery Center, which is expected to open in early 2024.
