Cerner, a global leader in health care technology, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the first two towers at Innovations, the organization's newest campus in the Kansas City area.
Cerner President Zane Burke and Cerner Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Nill were joined by Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens and Kansas City Mayor Sly James to commemorate the milestone in the multi-phased project. The office is expected to create capacity for up to 16,000 new jobs by 2025 and is the largest economic development project in the history of the state.
"This project is a tangible reflection of Cerner's growth and the next generation of health care innovations," said Mike Nill, Executive Vice President and COO, Cerner. "The campus name and design features symbolize our commitment to develop solutions and services that will advance and improve the ever-changing health care industry. The work performed in these buildings will continue shaping the future of health care for both providers and patients."
This will be Cerner's seventh campus in the Kansas City area. The first two towers house 3,000 Cerner engineering associates and were designed with open and collaborative meeting spaces to encourage creativity, dynamic thinking and community.
