Independence Family Medicine

1415 N. Penn | Independence, KS 67301 | 620-331-2400

Independence Family Medicine (IFM), owned by Wilson Medical Center, first opened in May of 2013 to provide quality care and stability to the community. In September 2014, Johnathan Rodriquez - Board Certified Nurse Practitioner providing general care - joined the clinic, helping the practice to grow. In February of 2016, Mardie Long - Board Certified Nurse Practitioner - joined the practice, providing family care through the clinic.

The successful practice quickly outgrew its old location and, in December of 2015, the Wilson Medical Center Foundation purchased the old Braums building located at 1415 N. Penn in Independence. The building was remodeled for the Independence practice.

In August of 2016, Independence Family Medicine moved to its newly renovated building and continues to thrive in that location today.

The staff for the clinic includes Jody Wright - Office Manager, Bella Johnston - R.N., Melissa Lester - R.N., Erica Wilson - Medical Assistant/Radiology Tech, PJ Price - Medical Assistant, Debbie Armstrong - Receptionist, Nancy Winebrenner - Receptionist, and Wendy Barton - Billing Specialist.
