Kansas City is the largest city in the state of Missouri, encompassing over 318 square miles. It is often referred to as the City of Fountains, boasting more than 200 fountains, second only to Rome, Italy. Kansas City also has more boulevards than any other city except Paris, France. As such, Kansas City is referred to as Paris of the Plains.
There are about 500,000 people who live in the city of Kansas City, MO, but there are close to two million in the metro area, which includes parts of both Kansas and Missouri. With more than 240 neighborhoods in Kansas City, there is no shortage of parks, art, music and food.
TMC Lakewood also has the unique privilege of housing a pre-school and K thru 6th grade school. At Belmont Montessori students are immersed into an intergenerational program as part of their curriculum and with that receive the opportunity to interact with older adults in the long term care center.
Within five miles of the hospital are four large public boating lakes (Blue Springs, Jacomo, Longview and Prairie Lee) and within eight miles of TMC Lakewood are four private lake communities (Lotawana, Raintree, Tapawingo and Winnebago).
The hospital is on the eastern edge of Kansas City, adjacent to Lee’s Summit, MO, with hometown attractions including a farmers market, boutique shopping and town celebrations. Kansas City provides bigger venues of interest such as concerts, museums, Truman Library and sporting events (home of the 2015 World Series Champion Kansas City Royals).
