Research Medical Center is a 590-bed hospital located in Kansas City, Missouri at 2316 East Meyer Boulevard. It is part of the HCA Midwest Division. Research Hospital is less than 2 miles away from Research Medical Center-Brookside Campus. In April 2013, this hospital was in national news when its security staff removed Roger Gorley from the room of his hospitalized same-sex partner of 5 years. Despite Gorley having status as his partners power of attorney, he was handcuffed and forcibly removed from the hospital. Gorley claimed that this was done at the behest of his partners brother, due to anti-homosexual discrimination.
