The Cotton O’Neil Kanza Park building, located at 2660 S.W. Third St., north of Sixth and MacVicar, opened for business in early January 2016. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Wednesday, Jan. 6. The 88,000 square foot facility offers ample space, easy access and beautiful views for Stormont's orthopedic, rehabilitation and single day surgery services. The second floor (top level) of the new building houses Cotton O’Neil Orthopedic and Sports Medicine (the new name of the combined practices of Kansas Orthopedic and Sports Medicine and Cotton O’Neil Orthopedic Surgery).
