OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - The University of Kansas Hospital is breaking ground on a new inpatient hospital in Overland Park.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2a9k9ic ) reports that hospital and government officials were gathering Wednesday afternoon to mark construction of the new $100 million building. It is being built on the hospital’s Indian Creek Campus and is scheduled for completion in 2018.

The 122,507-square-foot facility will start with 18 patient rooms and eight operating rooms. It is designed to accommodate 17 more beds in the planned space.

The new building will be connected to the existing Indian Creek surgical building, which has seven operating rooms and 19 patient beds.

The facility won’t have an emergency room.
