Heartland Spine & Specialty Hospital in Overland Park, Kan., has changed its name to Heartland Surgical Specialty Hospital in order to more accurately reflect the variety of services offered at the physician-owned hospital, according to a release by the hospital.

"We have worked to continually improve the services we provide and the quality of care we deliver to our patients and their families. Our new name more accurately reflects the expanded services we provide our patients and the communities we serve."
Founded in 2003, the 80 members of Heartland's medical staff provide a broad range of professional services, including orthopedic and spine surgery, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, hand surgery, general surgery, weight loss surgery, ENT surgery and primary care medicine, according to the release.
Heartland's CEO Don Burman, echoed Dr. Gonzalez' statement and noted that Heartland was recently recognized by Press Ganey & Associates for the hospital's ongoing effort to improve customer service and customer satisfaction.
