KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kemper Arena in Kansas City is set to be renamed Mosaic Arena.

The Kansas City Star reports that the renaming is part of an agreement announced Tuesday between development company Foutch Brothers and Mosaic Life Care.

Mosaic Life, a St. Joseph-based health care system, has an initial agreement to become the naming rights sponsor for the arena. The value of the naming rights has not been disclosed.

Foutch plans to repurpose the arena into a regional amateur sports facility. Mosaic Life, which has an expanding group of clinics, says it will open an on-site medical clinic at the arena that will be open to the public.

The clinic will include sports medicine, massages and urgent care.

Plans for turning the space into a sports facility are still being vetted.
