Physician-owned healthcare system opens new support center in Kansas City area

Vituity, a physician-owned healthcare delivery organization, has opened a new system support center in the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area.

The new operation, located in an 8,600-square-foot space at 220 W 89th St. in Leawood, Kansas, will create an initial 65 jobs with plans to grow over the next three years.

“We’re thrilled to be part of the leading healthcare industry in Kansas City by opening a new system support center in the area,” said Imamu Tomlinson, chief executive officer of Vituity, in a statement.

Vituity’s Kansas City area office will also provide critical systems support for the company’s nationwide operations.

“The Kansas City region is the perfect place for Vituity to call home,” said Tim Cowden, president and chief executive officer of the Kansas City Area Development Council (KCADC). “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.”

After nearly 40 years of being known as CEP America, Vituity changed its name in January 2018. Based in Emeryville, California, the organization is an equitable physician partnership.
