LARNED, Kan. (AP) - State officials say the warden at the Kansas Department of Corrections mental health facility in Larned has left the position, but offered no details.

The Hutchinson News (https://bit.ly/2cwq5Ef ) reports Wednesday was the last day Douglas Waddington led the Larned Correctional Mental Health Facility. The center is different from Larned State Hospital, which is on the same campus.

Kansas Department of Corrections spokesman Adam Pfannenstiel declined to comment about the nature of Waddington’s departure, citing policy not to speak about personnel matters. Waddington doesn’t have a listed phone number.

Waddington was named warden at Larned in 2011. His biography says he started his career in corrections more than three decades ago in Oklahoma and had served as a warden at three corrections facilities in Washington state before joining KDOC.
