A Matter of Ownership - Kansas Medical Center [cached]

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.

Use of robotic surgery expands in Wichita area – Kansas Medical Center [cached]

"When you go to the robot, there's no feel," said Badr Idbeis, a cardiothoracic surgeon and CEO of Kansas Medical Center.
"It's all visual, visual-tactile. Idbeis, for instance, said his training involved learning from surgeons using da Vinci at the Cleveland Clinic and in Greenville, N.C. Since installing the da Vinci at Kansas Medical Center, Idbeis estimates they have done more than 30 surgeries with the robot, including heart surgeries he has performed. He said the system is also used at his hospital for urologic surgeries. But Idbeis and other hospital officials said they are convinced that in some instances it has become a standard of care and an expectation of patients. Idbeis said a clear example of that is the heart surgeries he's performed. With the da Vinci, he doesn't have to "crack the chest" of a patient getting a heart bypass, for instance. "Cracking the breast bone is what delays the recovery," he said, adding that recovery for patients who have had their chest cracked can take four to six weeks versus patients whose heart surgery was performed with the da Vinci. "I tell my patients they can go back to work anytime they want to within one to two weeks of surgery," he said. Idbeis added that not all patients are candidates for heart surgery using the da Vinci. For instance, if a patient needs both a bypass and a mitral valve repair, then traditional, or "open" surgery is required. Just as the number of robots has increased, so, too, will the procedures. Idbeis said pulmonary, or lung, surgery using the da Vinci may be the next service offered at Kansas Medical Center.
