Spira Care will open its ninth location at 3717 S. Whitney Ave. in Independence, Missouri, by late 2022/early 2023. With Care Centers conveniently located across the Kansas City metro area, Spira Care continues to expand its footprint as membership grows to better serve its patients’ advanced primary care needs.
No additional cost* advanced primary care for adults, adolescents, and children
At Spira Care Centers, patient-centered Care Teams consist of physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, behavioral health consultants, health coaches, and diabetes educators. Removing barriers to care is critical to Spira Care’s vision, and this is partly realized by removing financial barriers to primary, preventive, and sick care.
Offering a personal, simplified, patient-centered experience focused on whole person health, the Spira Care model allows more time for providers to listen to you, address health concerns, and support your wellness goals. Care Guides are available to help you understand your care plan, coordinate care, and explain health insurance benefits.
“Spira Care is also one of the first primary care practices in the region to offer integrated behavioral health—identifying and treating the unmet behavioral health needs that so often accompany medical conditions and contribute to unfavorable clinical and cost outcomes,” said Dr. Becky Gernon, Department Vice President, Spira Care Medical Director.
