State Issues Emergency Suspension of Child Care Center in Augusta

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) has issued an Emergency Order of Suspension against Belinda Rosenbaum Day Care Home, a registered day care home located at 1612 Cedar Lane in the city of Augusta, which is located in Butler County east of Wichita.

State law allows the Secretary of KDHE to issue such an order when, in the opinion of the Secretary, the order is necessary to protect children in the facility from any potential threat to health or safety.

The order is subject to appeal to the Secretary.
