KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — HCA Midwest Health will move its headquarters from Kansas City, Missouri, to Overland Park, Kansas, in the latest move in a business “border war” between the two states.
The Kansas City Star reports the company, which owns eight hospitals in the Kansas City area, will receive tax incentives from Kansas.
State officials say the details of the incentives aren’t final. The Kansas Department of Commerce announced the move Wednesday, saying HCA Midwest plans to invest $10.8 million in its new headquarters.
The new Kansas governor, Jeff Colyer, a plastic surgeon, is the associate clinical director of a burn center at Research Medical Center, which HCA Medical owns.
The headquarters will relocate about four miles this summer when the lease expires at its Missouri location.
