Via Christi begins name-change process at Wichita Clinic locations

The Wichita Clinic name is going away.

Officials said today that the clinic's legal name change to Via Christi Clinic becomes effective Wednesday.

Via Christi Health acquired Wichita Clinic late last year.

Employee name badges have been changed and the process of replacing signs at the clinic's 13 locations will begin today, with new signs at Wichita Clinic's Founder Circle scheduled to be replaced over the lunch hour.

A Wichita Clinic news release said the changeover will not affect patient insurance coverage nor patient choice in selecting a non-Via Christi hospital.

Clinic phone numbers will remain the same.
