  • Cotton-O’Neil Clinic Opening in Lyndon in Mid-July

    Friday June 28, 2013

    (Topeka, Kan., June 28, 2013) – Cotton-O’Neil Clinic, a medical clinic with a long history of providing exceptional care throughout northeast Kansas, will open a primary care clinic in downtown Lyndon on Monday, July 15, 2013. The clinic, part of the Stormont-Vail HealthCare family of care, will offer an advanced practice registered nurse to care for patients ranging in age from newborn to senior citizen. James Seeman, M.D., a family medicine physician, will manage the treatment provided at the clinic and will see patients one day a week. Hours for the clinic will be Monday through Friday: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Representatives from Stormont-Vail worked with local community leaders to determine a location for the clinic. Together we will provide a strengthened foundation on which we can maintain and grow the clinic’s ability to care for the residents of Lyndon. The building is 2,500 square feet in size and will be equipped with exam room equipment and limited lab services.

    The Stormont-Vail Foundation provided funding for remodeling and equipment to open the new clinic. The funding was made possible through monies received from the Lewis Humphreys Charitable Trust. Lewis Humphreys and his wife Elva were originally from the Lebo/Arvonia area. Lewis was a member of the Stormont-Vail HealthCare Board of Directors and the Stormont-Vail Foundation Board of Directors.

    Cotton-O’Neil Clinic is enthusiastic to have the opportunity to provide a caring and experienced provider to the Lyndon community. “We thank the Humphreys’ family for their support of the Lyndon area and of Stormont-Vail,” said Deb Yocum, vice president and Clinic Operations Officer.

    Appointments for new patients are now being accepted at (785) 828-3207. Cotton-O’Neil Clinic – Lyndon is located at 715 Washington St., Suite B.
