A partnership between two medical centers and Washburn University could decrease the high cost of emergency room visits.

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.
