Manhattan Surgical Hospital and Stormont Vail Health have finalized partnership agreements. Through this partnership, Manhattan Surgical Hospital, its members, including Stormont Vail Health, will continue growing and strengthening health care services in Manhattan and the surrounding area.
Manhattan Surgical Hospital is a physician-owned surgical hospital that opened in 2001 and offers care across a variety of surgical procedures. “Manhattan Surgical Hospital and its physician partners are very excited to finalize this new partnership,” said Jamie McAtee, M.D., chairman of the board. “Stormont Vail Health has a long-standing history of providing best-in-class care in Manhattan and we’re looking forward to leveraging this partnership to strengthen current services and bring new services to the community.”
“We are committed to providing access to care close to home for those we serve,” said Robert Kenagy, M.D., CEO and president of Stormont Vail Health. “Manhattan Surgical Hospital has an excellent reputation and has served the Manhattan community for almost 20 years. This opportunity will offer many advantages to the patients we serve including enhanced access and experience.”
Manhattan Surgical Hospital performs more than 10,000 procedures annually in multiple specialties, invests in the latest technologies to ensure the highest quality of care and is an active and integral organization in the Manhattan community. They acquired the Central Kansas Cancer Center in June 2017, offering cancer patients in the area the ability to receive the highest level of radiation therapy for their treatment in their own community. Manhattan Surgical Hospital also responded to the urgent needs of the community for access to primary care and opened the Blue River Family Medicine practice in July 2018.
“This will be a great collaboration, with a shared goal of improving the health of our community,” said Chris Stipe, CEO of Manhattan Surgical Hospital. “Riley County and the surrounding areas really have something to look forward to through this partnership.”
