State Hospital Faces Major Patient Influx
See this article by that title from the Kansas Health Institute. It begins:
Wichita's leading mental health center has informed state officials that it expects to refer an additional 1,250 people to Osawatomie State Hospital next year, which would mean a large influx of patients at a facility that already is frequently overcrowded.
COMCARE officials said they must begin diverting more patients to Osawatomie because recurring state budget cuts have left the center no longer able to afford the costs of providing inpatient care in Wichita.
