Three HCA Midwest Health physicians named to Ingram’s Magazine 2021 Class of Kansas City’s Top Doctors
Overland Park, KS — Three HCA Midwest Health physicians were recently named to the Ingram’s 2021 Class of Top Doctors serving the Kansas City region. Kelly J. Hendricks, MD, orthopedic surgeon, Menorah Medical Center; Research Medical Center Chief Medical Officer Olevia Pitts, MD; and Jaswinder Singh, MD, hematologist-oncologist, Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at HCA Midwest Health, are members of the class.

The three physicians were selected by a group of nominators, heavily represented by past honorees, who were asked one question: “If you or a relative were facing a complex diagnosis, who would you want for your doctor?” The 2021 Top Doctors class represents the magazine’s largest since launching the annual program a quarter century ago.
“HCA Midwest Health is proud that Dr. Hendricks, Dr. Pitts and Dr. Singh have been named to this prestigious class of extraordinary doctors serving Kansas City and its surrounding communities,” says HCA Midwest Health Chief Medical Officer Kimberly Megow, MD “Collectively, their acclaimed careers illustrate passion and dedication to high-quality, compassionate care for patients and their families during their most vulnerable time.
