Ignite Medical Resort Strategy
Ignite Medical Resorts raise the bar above traditional nursing homes that try to operate in both short term and long term care. Medical Resorts are a new industry sector that combine the amenities of a fine resort with the nursing and rehabilitation focus of inpatient rehabilitation facilities or LTACH’s. The vision is simple, to provide guests Uncompromising Luxury and Rapid Rehabilitation. Ignite Medical Resorts seeks to Extinguish the Stereotype of skilled nursing care, embrace innovation, provide patient-centered care, provide an employee-centric culture and deliver excellence in clinical care and customer service.
The Resort is located in the premier Northland area of Kansas City surrounded by new development and minutes from I-29 and I-435, providing convenient access for family and friends to visit. With close proximity to several large area health systems, including Saint Luke’s North campus and North Kansas City Hospital, Ignite has successfully established transitional care platforms for post-acute patients and quickly become a preferred provider in the Northland.
