Cost Details

Johnson County does not have its own coroner facility. Autopsies are currently conducted at a pay-for-use facility in Kansas City, Kansas.

A new coroner facility in Johnson County would cost approximately $19 million and provide:

  • Increased ability for conducting autopsies and controlling the prioritization of autopsy work—reducing wait time for families and local officials.
  • On-site toxicology (currently outsourced) and real-time data reporting for epidemics and crime (currently not available).
  • Ability to meet anticipated accreditation legislation and resulting requirements for facilities.
