Dozens of Kansans Waiting for Treatment at Osawatomie

Heartland Health Monitor is a reporting collaboration focused on the impact of health issues in the Midwest.

Limited capacity and other problems at the state’s largest psychiatric hospital are forcing some Kansas residents who need mental health treatment to wait, sometimes for days, in hospital emergency rooms.  More from Heartland Health Monitor’s Jim McLean.

Jim McLean is a reporter for the KHI News Service in Topeka.  He's also a contributor to Heartland Health Monitor, a reporting collaboration focused on health issues and their impact in Kansas and Missouri. The partners — Kansas Public Radio, KCUR, KMUW, KCPT Public Television and the KHI News Service --- strive to bring listeners and readers timely, accurate and comprehensive coverage of health and health-related issues.
