WELLINGTON – The Ascension Via Christi emergency department is now open in Wellington.
The emergency department opened on March 15, and fills a void created when Sumner Community Hospital closed a year ago.
The new emergency room is located within the former hospital at 1323 N. A Street. The facility is owned by the City of Wellington and has been remodeled. It will be open 24 hours a day. There is a single entry for all patients except those who arrive by EMS.
This expands the Ascension Via Christi presence in Sumner County. Ascension now operates the Sumner County Family Care Center clinics in Wellington and Mulvane.
