The Lee's Summit CareSpot is a 4,000-square-foot freestanding facility located south and east of John Knox Village.

The Lee's Summit location is convenient to residents of Raintree Lake, Eagle Creek, Bent Tree Bluffs, Longview Farms, Winterset, Stoney Creek, Newcastle, and Ashton at Charleston Park subdivisions.

"We're excited about our seventh location in the Kansas City area. This expanded presence means greater awareness of our broad service offering and continues to deliver on our goal of providing a variety of locations convenient to where people live and work," said Paul Dickison, Vice President of Marketing for CareSpot. "Additionally, our partner HCA Midwest has a particularly strong presence in Lee's Summit with Lee's Summit Medical Center, as well as with many other providers' and specialists' offices. It's helpful to have such a well-respected hospital and physician network nearby if CareSpot patients need more specialized or follow-up care following a visit."

To offer convenience to those with busy lifestyles, all Kansas City area CareSpot centers are open 8am8pm, seven days a week. Patients also benefit from the convenience of online and mobile scheduling tools.
