Leawood’s Healthly Lifestyle

This city goes the extra mile when it comes to overall health. Just go on a short drive and you’ll notice many fitness facilities, several neighborhood pools, practice fields, recreational sports complexes, parks and trails.

Aside from physical fitness, many nationally recognized hospitals and specialty services provide Leawood residents with high quality care. The list includes Children’s Mercy South Hospital, Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute, Menorah Medical Center, St. Joseph Medical Center, Saint Luke’s South Hospital and Shawnee Mission Medical Center.

Because health is so important to Leawood, you can see that it translates into lower insurance rates and worker’s compensation costs for employees. With a more productive work force, it’s no wonder Leawood residents are able to enjoy a high quality of life, both personally and professionally.

Security and Safety First

Thanks to hundreds of highly- trained and compassionate emergency response personnel, safety and security come first when emergencies strike.

The Leawood Police Department
With a 90 member staff, The Leawood Police Department keeps the public safe and works tirelessly to provide programs like DARE, Armed Robbery Prevention, the Citizens Police Academy, and a Women’s Self Awareness Program to educate the community about the danger. In the fall of 2013, the $20 million Leawood Justice Center at Town Center Drive and Tomahawk Creek Parkway was opened. Now with 70,000 square feet of space, the new building houses the Leawood Police Department, Leawood Municipal Court, the city’s legal department, and IT staff.

The Leawood Fire Department
Our fire department has three stations that respond to calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It responds to a variety of incidents including fires, explosions, hazardous material spills, medical emergencies, technical rescues, and incidents involving domestic terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. It also responds to a wide variety of non-emergency calls, such as requests to assist with smoke detector installation and utility shut-off.

As a result of the hard work of the fire department and with the support of our mutual aid partners, communications center, and water distribution facility, the City of Leawood has been awarded a number 1 rating from the Insurance Services Office for its fire protection efforts.

Emergency Medical Services
These services are provided by Johnson County Med-Act. In March of 1975, Med-Act was created as a result of the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners recognizing the need for a county-wide Emergency Medical Service, including Advanced Life Support (ALS) capabilities. Med-Act provides service to all cities that are located within the 477 square miles that make up Johnson County.
