HCA Midwest recognizes progress after five years

Kansas City Star, April 1, 2008
HCA Midwest has lived up to many of the promises it made when it purchased the 12-hospital Health Midwest system five years ago and became Kansas City's market leader. The deal represented the largest conversion of nonprofit assets to for-profit status in U.S. history. HCA Midwest is now the operator of 10 area hospitals, and at the time of the purchase HCA promised $450 million in capital outlays over five years. It has exceeded that and spent about $600 million so far.
