Advanced Pain Medicine Associates to expand

WICHITA — Advanced Pain Medicine Associates moved into 11,300 square feet at 3715 N. Oliver in January 2009 and now is expanding by adding another approximately 4,600 square feet.

"We do have some plans that we are working on right now," says administrator Kim Talley.

She hopes expansion will be complete in the first quarter of 2012.

"That's our goal."

Physician Jon Parks founded the group in late 2000 after leaving Wesley Rehabilitation Hospital.

There are now three physicians, two physician assistants and a nurse practitioner who provide medication management and implanted devices for pain control.

Business has grown, and the group is expanding services, too, though Talley says those details are still being worked out.

Advanced Pain Medicine Associates already expanded once in its new location with a larger parking lot eight months after moving in.

Talley says the group didn't foresee the need for new space so soon.

"We did not expect to expand this quickly."
