A Matter of Ownership - Kansas Medical Center

Nothing at the Andover facility had changed - patient welfare is still the standard, says CEO Badr Idbeis from its debut to day No. 365.
Kansas Medical Center is owned by Idbeis and a small group of physicians. Its management team, with the exception of a CFO, consists of practicing physicians. In fact, when Idbeis decides to stop practicing medicine, hospital bylaws dictate he must also step down as CEO. Idbeis says a federal government study shows that there is no evidence that cities with physician-owned hospitals pose any threat to acute-care facilities. "The negative impact on other hospitals in a community is nonexistent. The government MedPac study confirmed that," Idbeis says. Idbeis questions the difference between a doctor having ownership in a hospital and a hospital offering a private practitioner a title or place on its staff. "I am in the trenches every single day," Idbeis says. Still, with so many levels of management from patient to decision maker, Idbeis says there is a real concern that communication breakdowns will occur. "The legacy hospital is a dinosaur," he says. Badr Idbeis, CEO of Kansas Medical Center in Andover, says there is no proof that physician-owned hospitals have an adverse impact on community hospitals. The physician-owned hospital planned for west Wichita will partner with Andover's Kansas Medical Center and will be managed by Cardiovascular Hospital of America LLC both of which are run by Badr Idbeis. "The relationship is going to include an equity position for CHA as well as KMC in the west side hospital," Idbeis confirmed Tuesday in a written statement. Idbeis was introduced to about 60 potential shareholders of the $24 million hospital Tuesday at the Airport Hilton. Kansas Medical Center and Cardiovascular Hospital of America LLC, both owned by Badr Idbeis, above, will partner with developer Matt Lillie's physician-owned hospital planned for west Wichita.

Medical center in Andover offers heart procedure using Impella device - Kansas Medical Center

Interventional cardiologist Hussam Farhoud, a physician with Heartland Cardiology who specializes in advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology, performed the procedures along with cardiovascular surgeon Badr Idbeis, who is also the CEO of Kansas Medical Center.
The procedure can be especially helpful for patients who have too much risk in open surgical procedures, Idbeis said. It can be completed in less than an hour. "A lot of the patients (who have the procedure) are pre-transplant patients, and this can improve the blood supply to help avoid a transplant," Idbeis said.
