KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Saint Luke's Health System plans to close two of its Overland Park locations on Dec. 30.

Bobby Olm-Shipman, Saint Luke’s South and East Region CEO, said in a news release that the health system's "community hospital model has performed remarkably well," but two locations -- 75th Street and Metcalf and 159th Street and 69 Highway -- have seen "lower patient volumes since opening."

Employees at those sites will be able to apply for other positions within the health system.

The following locations still will be open:

  • 132nd Street and State Line Road in Leawood.
  • The Legends in Kansas City, Kansas.
  • 135th Street and Black Bob Road in Olathe.
  • Johnson Drive and Roe Ave in Roeland Park.
  • Shawnee Mission Parkway and Lackman Road in Shawnee.

In June, Saint Luke's Health System announced that Leavenworth's Cushing Hospital would close.

A "limited number" of staff also were furloughed for 90 days earlier this year.
