LARNED, Kan. (AP) — State officials say the warden at the state prison system’s psychiatric hospital has left the position but offered no details.

The Hutchinson News reports that Wednesday was the last day Douglas Waddington led the Larned Correctional Mental Health Facility.

Kansas Department of Corrections Communications Director Adam Pfannenstiel declined to comment about the nature of Waddington’s departure, citing policy not to speak about personnel matters. Waddington doesn’t have a listed phone number.

Waddington was named warden at Larned in 2011. His biography says he started his career in corrections more than three decades ago in Oklahoma and had served as a warden at three corrections facilities in Washington state before joining KDOC.
