WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) -

The Hunter Health Clinic will expand services in a new facility at Central and Grove.

The non-profit organization currently provides medical, dental, and behavioral health services. The new facility will expand those current services, and will provide an onsite pharmacy, optometry or x-ray services in the coming months.  

"Our idea was if we could get more services under one roof for our patients, then the better to be able to kind of wrap those services around them and make sure they're getting the comprehensive care that they need," said Amy Feimer, CEO of Hunter Health.

The clinic serves 13,500 unique patients who are insured, underinsured, or uninsured. They also provide services to the Native American population as the only Urban Indian Health Center in the state of Kansas.

"We serve everyone in the community," said Feimer.

The new 21,917 square foot facility was partially funded by a $4.6-million federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration. Feimer said the project was under budget at $6-million.

"We have had generous community support, which has been instrumental to us being where we are today," said Feimer. "We are very grateful for that. We could not be here serving the community without the support of the community."

The current facility remains open but will close on Friday for staff to move into the new facility. The doors to the new facility will open to the public on Monday.
