When you take an active role in your health and work closely with us, you can be sure you are getting the care you need for your body, mind, and spirit. HISTORY Hunter Health was founded in 1976. Vernon Dyer, a Choctaw and Prairie Band Potawatomie OB/GYN physician, opened the clinic in response to the overwhelming need for culturally appropriate health care services for Urban Indians. The clinic started in a back room at the Mid-American All Indian Center, but demand for services grew so rapidly among Wichita’s Native American community that the clinic moved to a larger location in 1978 and incorporated in 1980 as the Wichita Urban Indian Health Center. In 1985, the clinic expanded to serve all people and was renamed Hunter Health Clinic, in honor of Jay and Vera Hunter, respected Indian elders and school teachers. Eventually, Hunter Health expanded into three locations. For more than 40 years, Hunter Health has been offering affordable care to members of Sedgwick County and the surrounding communities. We are committed both to this model of health care and our patients.
