“On the count of three, we inaugurate this medical school!”

If you attended the event Tuesday afternoon, this brief, yet powerful, statement should ring familiarity. On June 6th, 2017, Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences cut the ribbon and opened the new Joplin campus. The first Missouri medical school in nearly 50 years! How proud and honored are we?!

Joplin’s community is quickly being rebuilt, rising from the rubble like a phoenix, after the horrifically devastating tornado in 2011.

KCUMB is one of the many new buildings being erected on hollowed ground within our city. Just a few years ago, the parking lot of St. John’s Regional Medical Center was a tragic vision: mass destruction, tornado debris, and overwhelming grief - a true living nightmare to those who survived. And now, the lot plays host to the newest medical school in Missouri. That alone is enough to fill our hearts with hope. And it just gets better!

The insertion of a medical school to the Joplin community will not only boost education standards, but it’ll give a positive nudge to our economy! The school will create an opportunity for new jobs and increase enrollment in local colleges and universities. This addition also creates a considerable increase to the amount of physicians available to our community and the Four-State area.

Of course, we will be doing our part to aid in an easy transition for students and faculty members. Population upsurges have a direct impact on the local housing market!

From a student’s perspective, medical school is a very time-consuming task. Property upkeep can develop into more of a chore than what’s necessary or desired, when owning a home. Lucky for you lovely people, we have a hand in property management!
