Chairman's Notes

Our bylaws specify that board members are limited to serving three consecutive three year terms. August 31, 2018 will mark that anniversary for me. 

I am delighted to announce that Cindy LaFleur will be stepping into the chairman’s role at that time. Cindy is a Clinic board member; her past involvement as well as her extensive resumé of positions within the Wichita area medical and Diocesan communities will serve her well as Guadalupe Clinic Board Chair. She is currently serving as Catholic Care Center Executive Director. Cindy earned an undergraduate degree from Kansas University and an MBA in Healthcare Administration from Western Governors University. In July 2018 she was selected as a Heath Care Hero.

In 2009, I was invited to join the Guadalupe Clinic board of directors. Dan Loughman was board chair at the time and I was privileged to become involved. The Clinic was under the leadership of Marlene Dreiling and the iconic Sister Kathleen Regan whose legacy still remains strong, years after her passing. These two provided a firm grounding for the Clinic’s compassionate service to the medically underserved. 

Subsequent years have seen the Clinic grow into multiple “brick and mortar” facilities providing a rainbow of routine as well as specialty medical services to our clients. Board leadership, support from Bishop Kemme, and a talented, hard-working staff, plus an incredible cadre of medical and administrative volunteers make this possible. 

The four “pillars” of Stewardship that Dan tirelessly promoted are: hospitality, prayer, formation and service. Clearly the qualities embodied in each of these pillars live each day at the Clinic.   

Welcome Cindy. And my sincere personal thanks to all donors, staff and board members of Guadalupe Clinic and Guadalupe Health Foundation!

Our History

In 1985, six volunteer nurses decided to change the face of medicine in Wichita.  They wanted quality affordable health care made available to everyone, regardless of income.  They founded Guadalupe Health Station, which later was renamed Guadalupe Clinic.  Now some 32 years later, there are three clinics and volunteers and staff also provide outreach services at various locations around Wichita.  Guadalupe Clinic has been a donation-based clinic since its inception in 1985. Patients are asked for a $5 donation and receive a doctor's care, lab tests, x-rays, and medication for that donation. No one is ever turned away due to an inability to donate.   Medical volunteers along with staff provide thousands of medical services each year to those in our community with no insurance or other affordable means to health care services.

These are the many companies and foundations that have provided Guadalupe Clinic with needed funding through grant opportunities. We are humbled and grateful for their belief in our mission and for all of their generous support.
