Wichita cardiovascular surgeon Badr Idbeis and a group of private investors hope to break ground in the next two months on an 80,000-square-foot general hospital in Andover.
Idbeis says he is a member of a group of unnamed investors in the project that has been rumored for more than a year now.
He says the group is "pretty close to starting construction" on the facility that will be the first general hospital in the fast-growing community east of Wichita.
Idbeis says the hospital will treat medical and surgical patients and have an emergency room.
It is also one of several general and specialty hospital projects that Idbeis, co-founder of the Kansas Heart Hospital, is involved in worldwide to give physicians control of patient care in hospitals.
"I believe it is the duty of physicians to take charge since we are the only remaining advocates of patients," he says.
International reach
Idbeis is co-founder of another company, Cardiovascular Hospitals of America, that is working on general and specialty hospital projects in the United States and overseas.
Idbeis is chairman, president and CEO of the company.
The suit says physician Badr ..., 8 Mar 2004 [cached]
The suit says physician Badr Idbeis is using confidential information gained through his relationship as chairman, co-chief executive and management committee member of Kansas Heart Hospital.
The Kansas Heart Hospital petition, filed by Ken Peterson of the law firm of Morris, Laing, Evans, Brock and Kennedy, alleges that Idbeis gained access to confidential information as a result of a "fiduciary relationship" with Kansas Heart Hospital and that his plans to build Kansas Medical Center are based in part on that knowledge.
The suit marks the second time in three years that Idbeis has faced allegations of violating noncompete agreements.In May 2002, his former employer, Wichita Surgical Specialists, fired him, citing his participation in the development of the Kansas Spine Hospital, which it said could compete with a venture it was considering.
The suit says the Idbeis venture at Andover would be called the Kansas Medical Center and would be "based in part on the defendant's knowledge of KHH's confidential information, including the business model and practices, gained as a result of his special relationship with KHH."
In a second claim, the petition says Idbeis knew of confidential KHH business development opportunities and in seeking to build an Andover hospital, acted in a way that "intentionally interfered with the business expectations of KHH."

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.
