The Ashley Clinic has been caring for the health of Southeast Kansas for over 70 years!
The history behind the Ashley Clinic begins in 1938 when Dr. Samuel Ashley and his son Dr. George "Ed" Ashley established a practice in the Barnes’ Building above the former Jack's Jewelry Store in Chanute. The clinic later moved to 211 West Main Street. A second son, Dr. Glen Ashley, joined the family practice in 1947 after serving as a physician in World War II.
In 1952, Dr. Don Abbuehl, a general surgeon, joined the clinic, expanding the medical specialties offered to area residents. Additionally, Dr. Abbuehl was the first board-certified surgeon in the area, which helped the new hospital in Chanute to obtain accreditation by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Hospitals. The quality and reputation of the clinic continued to attract physicians to Southeast Kansas – such as Drs. Donald Ray, Albert Kihm, and Earl Gehrt.
Today the Ashley Clinic stands at 505 South Plummer Avenue, Chanute, and has grown into a thriving practice that includes satellite locations in Humboldt, Erie, and Iola. The clinic also sponsors surgical outreach clinics in Neodesha and Burlington, as well as urological outreach clinics in Iola, Neodesha, and Burlington.
The Ashley Clinic specializes in quality healthcare for the entire family. The clinic has 20 providers covering pediatrics, general surgery, urology, OB/GYN, family medicine, and diabetic counseling and education to better serve the communities' needs.
The Ashley Clinics offer a full range of family healthcare services including obstetrics, physical exams and sports physicals, on-site laboratory, digital x-ray, sonogram, on-site EKG testing and bone density studies, immunizations, minor surgery, KAN-Be-Healthy screenings, wellness and preventive medicine exams, physical therapy education and referrals, diabetic education and counseling, and an outreach cancer center. Ashley Clinic also has two convenient pharmacy locations in Chanute and Humboldt, Kansas.
