Briarcliff Surgery Center
Acclaimed for its world renowned barbecue and jazz, Kansas City, Missouri is a dynamic city backed by a vibrant arts scene, world-class attractions, professional and collegiate sports and an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants. Thanks to arts-centric developments both large-scale and grassroots, KC is fast becoming a hotbed of high culture. The $326 million Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts opened to host the Kansas City Ballet, the Lyric Opera, and the Kansas City Symphony. The center's arrival has only helped to bolster the already-vibrant Crossroads Arts District—a funky enclave of 70-plus galleries in renovated warehouses, interspersed with boutiques and restaurants that surround it.
