Allen County Regional Hospital–Moran Clinic to Close in September

August 25, 2022

Iola, Kansas - Allen County Regional Hospital-Moran Clinic will permanently close next month. Patients were notified in a letter sent earlier this month.

“Our goal, as always, is to ensure the services we provide truly match what our communities need from us,” said Steve Schieber, CEO of Saint Luke’s Critical Access Region. “In evaluating data from the past several years, we’ve seen clearly that many of our patients in the eastern part of the county are already choosing to seek care at our Iola and Humboldt clinic locations. As a result, and after a thorough review, we have made the decision to permanently close the Moran Clinic and redistribute those resources so we can increase patient services at our Humboldt Clinic.”

Since 2017, the Moran Clinic has been open only Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, sharing its provider, JoAnna Curl, PA-C, and a medical assistant with the Humboldt Clinic. Closing the Moran Clinic will allow the staff to focus on the patients and care provided at the highervolume clinic in Humboldt.

The last day to schedule an appointment at the Moran Clinic is Sept. 1. JoAnna Curl, PA-C, will continue to be available for appointments at the Humboldt Clinic by calling 620-473-3008.

Transportation assistance for non-emergent medical care and other health and wellness needs may be available through Thrive Allen County. Learn more about transportation assistance from Thrive Allen County or call 620-228-0463.
