Truman Medical Centers – Why Work For Us?

Truman Medical Centers (TMC) has all the things you expect from a great health system. With two acute care academic hospital locations, the largest, most comprehensive behavioral health program in the area, a long-term care facility and multiple primary care practices, TMC provides care from birth through your senior years. We are the primary teaching hospital for the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine, so our doctors are academic specialists who teach tomorrow’s doctors the very latest updates in their respective specialties.

TMC Hospital Hill, in downtown Kansas City, is the busiest Level One Trauma Center in the city. From the healing environment of 400 works of museum quality art to our seasonal produce market, you can count on something special at TMC. We provide the full range of services with specialties in chronic disease management, high risk pregnancy and sleep disorders along with the state-of-the art Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Center.

University Health, located at 2101 Charlotte Street is TMC’s beautiful new outpatient care and day-surgery center, with fifteen clinics including Sabates Eye Center, Plastic Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynecology and Medical Imaging with Siemens 3D Mammography.

In eastern Jackson County, TMC Lakewood sits on 300 acres of beautiful wooded grounds. With a nature walking trail and scenic views, our facility is the epitome of comfort and care. We have all the services you would expect from a community hospital — from emergency medicine to a nationally-certified orthopaedic joint replacement program — as well as The Lakewood Family Birthplace, a labor and delivery unit that provides comfort and care for the whole family. We have several community-based family medical care centers and a radiology center, Medical Imaging Eastland, that provides the latest in technology and specialized breast cancer care.

    Wonderful health benefits!! Wonderful small team, no complaints. I like everyone here, everyone is super nice. My boss is honest and passionate about what she does for the community. I feel respected and important here. My job allows me to challenge myself and be creative.


    Sometimes there are weekend events, but my boss is always willing to let me go early another day during the next week! So not really any cons!
