Greg Graves is heading into retirement, relinquishing his duties as CEO of Burns & McDonnell, a title he's held at the engineering company since 2004. During his tenure, he quadrupled the company's employee count, and taken sales from $387 million to a projected $2.8 billion in 2016.
For the past year, LANE4 Property Group has been quietly scooping up acquisitions and investments outside of its traditional retail focus. Now, the firm is applying its foundation of investment knowledge and strategy to a handful of new classes by way of three projects on the Kansas side of the state line.
The University of Kansas Hospital has officially moved into its new private suite at the LightEdge data center facility at Hunt Midwest’s SubTropolis Technology Center.
The new location allows the healthcare provider to commit to the most stringent patient information protection.
LightEdge easily met the hospital’s demand for a partner with the financial backing to ensure long term stability and the option for capacity expansion. The hospital began moving into LightEdge’s Phase I 60,000 square foot underground facility during the first half of 2015 and is now fully operational in the facility.
“The stability and flexibility that we have achieved by moving to LightEdge has freed capital and resources allowing us to stay ahead of technology changes, patient needs and our competition,” said Sean Roberts, systems director for The University of Kansas Hospital.
