Kemper Arena to become Mosaic Arena, with facilities for sports health care, rehabilitation & conditioning
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Mosaic Life Care is finishing up the paperwork to become the naming rights sponsor of Kemper Arena, and when it is all complete, Kemper Arena’s name will be changed to Mosaic Arena.
In addition to the name change, Mosaic will also open an on-site medical clinic in the facility that will be open to the public. Other services will include, but are not limited to, sports medicine consultations, urgent care, and massage therapy.
“The commitment of Mosaic Life Care is a symbolic first step for our redevelopment of the former Kemper Arena. A partner like Mosaic will be a catalyst to launch our youth sports project in the Stockyards District,” said Steve Foutch, CEO of Foutch Brothers, LLC.
Mosaic Life Care, a health system headquartered in St. Joseph, Mo., operates seven primary care clinics in Kansas City’s Northland offering urgent care, outpatient services and specialty care.
“Improving population health within the communities we serve and helping people individually adopt a lifestyle focused on health and wellness is the very core of how Mosaic Life Care is providing a new kind of health care,” said Mark Laney, MD, CEO of Mosaic Life Care. “This partnership allows us not only to expand health-care services in this area slated for tremendous growth and development, but also supports our vision to transform communities.”
Mosaic Life Care says it is introducing a new kind of health care.
“We are connected to the hearts, minds and spirits of our consumers and want to help you become the healthiest version of yourself. We do not just treat diseases and conditions, we improve lives. We’ve redefined health care into life care … it is health improvement and life improvement,” its website says.
“Anything we can do to promote community wellness and staying active is important to us,” said Dr. Laney. “This new facility goes a long way toward helping Kansas City do just that.”
Foutch Brothers, a construction/redevelopment company, signed the agreement with Mosaic Life Care, with a vision for Kemper to ‘reuse the building built for spectator performances into a place for each emerging athlete and musician to hone their skill and come together with support and opportunities.”
