Liberty Hospital in Liberty, Missouri, has signed a definitive agreement to merge the hospital and its clinics with the University of Kansas Health System.

This strategic move aims to enhance healthcare services in Kansas’ Northland region by providing a more integrated experience across primary, speciality and subspeciailty care.

The two entities signed a letter of intent in November last year, after which they carried out due diligence to reach definitive agreements.

The agreement outlines several key commitments, including the retention of Liberty Hospital employees and physicians, as well as the maintenance of an open medical staff for various services.

Liberty Hospital president and CEO Raghu Adiga said: “This partnership will ensure the future of Liberty Hospital and our ability to meet the growing healthcare needs of people in the Northland and north-west Missouri.

“We are excited to bring world-class healthcare to our patients, for our employees to experience the benefits of academic medicine, and for our community to enjoy the economic growth and local opportunities we expect from this partnership.”
