The Story of a Community Coming Together to Revitalize Its Capacity for Healing
Project Wellspring is a capital campaign to raise funds for a new community health clinic in Topeka, Kansas. We're working with Stormont Vail Health and the Shawnee County Commission to expand our capacity to deliver quality health care to underserved residents.
Since coming to Topeka in the summer of 2016, our goal has been to expand both the capacity for care and the scope of medical services in Topeka. As an important first step, we've recently completed a new clinic at 1400 S.W. Huntoon, the site of a former Dillon's grocery store. This new facility replaces our Capitol Family Clinic which was located on the grounds of Stormont Vail Health.
Contributions that we have received to Project Wellspring so far have enable us to move forward with the transformation of a former grocery store to a health clinic. But the campaign is about more than the renovation of the building itself.
It's about bringing healing and a better quality of life to tens of thousands of Shawnee County residents. Then, as we make health care more accessible throughout Greater Topeka, the community as a whole will get healthier, in its workforce, its economy and its potential for growth.
