KC Healthcare Academy
Investing in your Success

As business partners to the healthcare industry, our goal has always been to help you succeed in this ever-changing and often difficult environment.  We have sponsored educational lunch and learns for many  years, and in 2017 we are putting on our very first full-day conference.  That day will be jam-packed with information you need to help you successfully navigate this new world of Valued Based Healthcare.   This is one conference you do not want to miss! We’ll also continue our lunch and learns throughout the year, each session bringing you up-to-date information on topics also designed to help you position your practice for success ahead.

We are a diverse group of business partners, but all share the desire to give back to our healthcare clients and potential clients.
