WHY: With a strong commitment to supporting the community it serves, ER of Brookside, part of Research Medical Center, is presenting sponsor of the 34th Brookside Annual. Established in 1985 as a neighborhood festival, the Brookside Art Annual continues to draw artists and guests from across the nation. Known not only for the high-quality art on display, the popular event offers a weekend of family-friendly fun and local cuisine.

Now in its fourth consecutive year as the Brookside Art Annual’s presenting sponsor, ER of Brookside has added more activities for visitors to the art show. 

“Our continued sponsorship of the Brookside Art Annual represents ER of Brookside and Research Medical Center’s ongoing dedication to family, the arts and meaningful community interaction,” says Research Medical Center Assistant Chief Operating Officer Rob Schlicht. “We put the community’s well-being at the forefront of our mission, each and every day.”

ER of Brookside, in partnership with Cosentino’s Price Chopper, is expanding the kids’ tent at the Brookside Art Annual to include more activities, including a Teddy Bear Clinic on Saturday and Sunday, May 4th and 5th. Parents can bring their child with his or her favorite stuffed animal to the ER of Brookside interactive tent where the stuffed animal will receive a “medical check-up.”

There will also be Family-Centered Yoga and a Petting Zoo at the Brookside Tennis Courts on Saturday, May 4, from 9 – 11 a.m. RSVP for Yoga.

Additional sponsors include locally-owned businesses Cosentino's Price Chopper and Cosentino's Brookside Market.

As an integral part of the Brookside community, ER of Brookside and Research Medical Center Brookside Campus, located at Holmes Road and Rockhill Road, provide many healthcare services including emergency room, orthopedic care, OB/GYN services, and more. Research Medical Center is part of HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider.
