A popular health clinic in Wellington will close its doors next month and its three doctors will either retire or move to jobs away from family practice.
Doctors Larry Will, Joe Baker and Tammy McCue founded Wellington Family Practice Clinic in 1994. Its final day of operation is scheduled for May 24.
Will is retiring after practicing medicine in Sumner County since 1976. Baker has taken a position at a specialty facility in Wichita and McCue is pursuing a career in long-term nursing care. She also is medical director at a senior living center in Wichita.
Ten full-time employees at the clinic will be affected by the closing.
The clinic is in the process of mailing out about 3,500 letters informing the public of the decision to close.
