Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if you take my insurance?

We are located at 2900 Clay Edwards Dr. North Kansas City, MO 64116. It is just east of I-35 and Armour Rd, on the campus of North Kansas City Hospital.
What can I expect when I first arrive at Signature?
You will be greeted by a member of our assessment team and asked to fill out our health assessment.
Who do I call after hours for help?
Patients who have medical needs or need an assessment after 10pm are asked to go through the North Kansas City Hospital Emergency Room. A member of the Signature staff will meet with the patient and conduct the assessment there.
