Osage City clinic to stay open

Osage Newman Clinic

OSAGE CITY (KSNT) – An agreement has been reached to keep a clinic in Osage City open.

Wednesday Newman Regional Health announced the tentative agreement to transfer ownership of the Osage City clinic to Osage Family Care.

Osage Family Care is a limited liability company formed by Tamara Patterson, the advance practice registered nurse at the clinic.

The clinic was scheduled to close August 1st because Kansas law does not allow county hospitals to fund facilities outside their home county which for Newman Regional is Lyon County.
