TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - An open house for Topeka residents has been planned for the new Health and Wellness Center that the city has opened for its employees and retirees.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1KZScU6 ) reports that the open house is scheduled for Monday. The center, which is on the west end of the city’s Holliday Building, opened Jan. 8.

A news release from city manager Jim Colson said that the city government formed a health care advisory committee made up of members from all city unions and employee groups. The committee recommended the city offer the center in an effort to improve employees’ health.

The center is staffed with a nurse practitioner and a medical assistant.

City employees are paying for the center through part of their monthly premiums.
