  • Kansas City University - Joplin Campus

The building was once the former temporary hospital donated to Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences by Mercy Hospital Joplin. The renovations include an expansion of nearly 20,000 square feet that includes a large lecture hall, learning studio and lab dedicated to osteopathic manipulative medicine courses.

The school’s simulation suite includes 24 standardized patient exam rooms and three simulation rooms featuring high-fidelity, programmable robots in fully equipped medical, surgical, obstetrical and trauma settings. Extended video conferencing capabilities connect the Joplin campus to the Kansas City campus, allowing students, faculty, and staff to share learning opportunities.

Korbel's service began in November 2015 with the equipment list development and placement drawings.  Late in 2016, we were hired for procurement support scope to facilitate ordering and selection of equipment; the building opened for new students in fall in 2017.
