WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Children's Mercy Hospital of Kansas City, Mo., is holding the formal dedication of its permanent clinic in Wichita.
U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran was expected to be among the speakers at Monday's event at Children's Mercy Specialty Clinic.
The facility opened last year as Children's Mercy's first permanent clinic outside the Kansas City metropolitan area. The hospital has been leasing space around the Wichita area and sending specialists to the area for more than 20 years.
Children's Mercy says it served about 3,400 patients from Wichita last year and expanded its pediatric specialty services in response to that demand.
