   Hays Medical Center specialists serving central Kansans have moved into their new home–away-from-home at St. Rose Health Center. The HaysMed Specialty Clinic at St. Rose, which opens Monday, is located on the newly remodeled second floor.

          The specialists had been located at 1400 Polk.

          “This move allows our HaysMed specialists to be just down the hall from many of St. Rose’s primary-care providers,” said Mark Mingenback, corporate health consultant. “It enhances continuity of care for our patients.

          “In addition,” Mingenback said, “all our health-care providers and Hays specialists have access to the same electronic medical records system. This ensures seamless access to each patient’s history.”

          The new facility was designed with convenience as a top priority, Mingenback noted.

          “When the new main entrance and parking lot are finished in late October, patients and their families will be impressed with the layout,” he commented. “Our HaysMed clinic is located just off the elevator with the waiting room near the balcony overlooking the atrium.”

          The HaysMed specialists now located in St. Rose are:


Drs. Mauricio Anaya and Anil Pandit, cardiologistsDr. Elizabeth Ashworth, cardiothoracic surgeonDrs. Joel Fort, Lee Hodny, Timothy Hoskins and Rebeka Weber, OB/GYNDrs. Gulraiz Cheema and Vivek Sharma, orthopedic surgeonsDr. Roman Reznik, pulmonologistDrs. Jerod Grove and Paul Teget, general surgeonsDrs. Faris Azzouni, Kevin McDonald and Darrell Werth, and Ed Habash, PA, urology


          Specialists serving central Kansans who are not based at HaysMed have moved from St. Rose to 1400 Polk, the old Slater building that was just vacated.

          These physicians include: Dr. Dennis Thakor, ENT; Dr. David Gile, nephrologist; Dr. Phillip Challens, endocrinologist; and Drs. Nathan Feldt and Dee Spade, both pediatric endocrinologists.

          “St. Rose continues to lease office space to these specialists,” Mingenback said. “We understand how important they are to their patients. St. Rose is committed to providing the community with access to the best possible medical care.”

St. Rose specializes in primary care, prevention and wellness. Services include St. Rose Family Medicine, Convenient Care Walk-in Clinic, Great Bend Internists, imaging, infusion clinic, WellnessWorks, one-day surgical procedures, Golden Belt Home Health & Hospice and a comprehensive Specialty Clinic. St. Rose is co-owned by Hays Medical Center and Centura Health.
