Cerner officially opens big Innovations Campus in south Kansas City

13 Mar 2017 1:26 PM | Vickie Wolgast (Administrator)

Mike Nill, chief operating officer for Cerner Corp., recently talked about the company's future, employees, and growth with the media during a recent tour inside Innovations at 8779 Hillcrest Road in Kansas City. Two towers are completed that are part of a 16-phase development project that is calculated to be completed in 2025.

The sprawling property, stretching from 87th to 95th streets immediately east of Interstate 435, emphasizes that nexus in brick and mortar. The 290-acre campus is being laced with visual references to Cerner’s role in software development for the digitization and sharing of health records.

Its existing and planned roads are named after historic health and science leaders. Windows in the first two office towers are designed to evoke the DNA helix turned on its side. The buildings bear on-campus addresses numbered in the power of two, a nod to binary code used in computer science and math. The interiors reflect cutting-edge office planning.

About 3,000 software engineers and support staff are assigned to the new Innovations Campus, most of them relocated from Cerner’s nearby Realization Campus, which grew from the former Marion Laboratories complex and will continue to be remodeled to suit Cerner’s needs.
