TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Back in 2020, Topeka’s ER & Hospital opened in July. Wednesday, it celebrated its first year helping the community.

Topeka ER celebrated the occasion outside the facility with food trucks, inflatables, and a chance to visit with the community. The Topeka Fire Department, Police Department, and Life Star of Kansas Air Medical Services also visited the event to celebrate the anniversary.

Chief Medical Officer, Jared Schreiner, is very proud with how well the hospital has been running the past year. He believes they have designed quicker and more personal care for patients.

”While I love it, I found there was something missing,” Schreiner said about his experience at metropolitan hospitals. “I think that was the personal time and attention that a patient deserves and a patient’s family deserves when they’re in a scary time, which is most emergency room visits.”

Topeka ER & Hospital is open 24/7, and is located at 17th and Arvonia Pl., right across from the West Ridge movie theater.
