Kansas Orthopaedic Center has leased a vacant medical building at 2450 N. Woodlawn for an expansion to east Wichita.
The practice is expanding from its medical facilities at 7550 W. Village Circle in west Wichita.
Leisa Lowry of J.P. Weigand & Sons negotiated the lease for Kansas Orthopaedic Center, while Rod Stewart of Keller Williams Signature Partners Commercial handled the lease as the property manager for the California-based building owners.
Liz Ann Tolberd, administrator of the practice, said the practice has outgrown its west-side headquarters and will move east to accommodate more patients and add three new physicians – one in June and two in August.
The practice was founded in 1978 by Dr. Tyrone Artz, specializing in hand and upper extremities issues. Today, it includes nine physicians offering a full spectrum of orthopaedic services, ranging from fracture treatment and joint reconstruction to joint replacement.
The Woodlawn building is 5,669 square feet located near Galichia Heart Hospital, retirement facilities and several other medical buildings. It was formerly occupied by the Arthritis and Rheumatism Clinic. The building is undergoing renovation by Hutton Construction of Wichita, with occupancy slated for May.
