From Our Partners

“Your team performed at the top of their game –  they kept safe, accomplished a quality installation, and in an extremely timely fashion – all while you worked through 3-½” of rain… 
During normal operations or challenging times I know we want Kissick on our side.
I honestly still can’t figure out how you did all that work in those conditions. From the NKCH family – THANK YOU SO MUCH!”

– Nic Riesenberg, CHFM, CHC, LEED

Vice President of Facilities and Support Services, North Kansas City Hospital

“On behalf of Turner and the NKCH team, we want to thank you all for your hard work this past weekend.
