This Years Beneficiary

Proceeds from this year will support the Cambridge North Tower expansion. As demand for the highest level of care increases, The University of Kansas Hospital is frequently at full capacity, with overall growth expected to increase by 32 percent by 2019. To meet the needs of the most critically ill patients in our region, we are building Cambridge North Tower on our main campus.

This 92-bed inpatient facility will house surgical oncology, neurology, neurosurgery and ear, nose and throat services. Proceeds from Treads and Threads are earmarked specifically for surgical oncology in the new building.

More patients with all types of cancer will benefit from the addition of state-of-the-art surgical suites, which facilitate the most innovative treatments and procedures.

Proceeds will also add nursing staff to expand and enhance the lung cancer program at The University of Kansas Cancer Center, helping diagnose those patients most at risk and coordinate their care
