A partnership between two medical centers and Washburn University could decrease the high cost of emergency room visits.
An open house was held Thursday.
St. Francis, Valeo Behavioral Health, and Washburn have partnered for a new primary care clinic in Topeka.
Valeo is providing the location at their Oakley clinic, and Washburn’s Advanced Practice Nursing students will train there.
Valeo’s CEO says it’s meant to improve health for those with mental disorders and physical illnesses.
It opens July 1st.
