HCA Midwest Health System, Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider, and Midwest Physicians will once again partner with the Just For Her Expo to sponsor the 4th Annual Health and Wellness Expo.
Belton Regional Medical Center, Centerpoint Medical Center, Lafayette Regional Health Center, Lee’s Summit Medical Center, Menorah Medical Center, Overland Park Regional Medical Center, Research Medical Center and Research Psychiatric Center—all part of HCA Midwest Health System—will participate in the Health and Wellness Expo. Midwest Physicians, which will participate—also part of HCA Midwest Health System—is a network of 450 experienced, multi-specialty physicians located throughout the Greater Kansas City metropolitan area.
The Expo will be held Friday, May 30, to Sunday, June 1, at the Overland Park Convention Center Ballroom. Thousands of women from across Greater Kansas City are expected to attend this popular event, considered the area’s premiere women’s expo.
The theme of the Health and Wellness Expo is “Roadmap To Healthy Living.” The ballroom at the Convention Center will be transformed into a giant roadmap to create a fun, educational and interactive experience for participants focusing on health issues of concern to women and their families. The 12 interactive health educational stations will include information on heart and stroke care, women’s health, orthopedics, emergency care, burn care, cancer prevention and more.
“We are pleased to be able to bring the healthcare information our community wants and needs in this fun venue,” says M.L. Lagarde III, President, HCA Midwest Health System. “Making good, solid healthcare decisions is a lifetime journey and we’re pleased to travel this road with our community—the very people we support with high-quality, compassionate healthcare in outpatient centers, urgent cares, clinics, physician practices, surgery centers and more.”
The strength of the Midwest Physicians network includes specialists who focus on women’s care, including high-risk pregnancies and daVinci® robot-assisted, minimally invasive hysterectomies and more. The scope of services addresses each stage of a woman’s life.
“Showcasing the spectrum of services HCA Midwest Health System hospitals and Midwest Physicians offer to women is exciting,” says Megan L. Sneed, MD, board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, of Lee’s Summit Women’s Center and Lee’s Summit Medical Center. “We are proud to have some of the most advanced services and technology for women’s healthcare in Kansas City.
