Innovative Vein Solutions expanding Winfield

WICHITA — Innovative Vein Solutions is expanding again.

Physician Paul Cheatum opened his first clinic in 2009 at the Village at Greenwich at 21st and Greenwich.

About nine months ago, he expanded with a satellite office in Hutchinson. Next month, he’s adding one in Winfield at Winfield Medical Arts.

“We’ll be offering all of the normal services we offer here, particularly the varicose vein treatments and spider vein treatments,” Cheatum says. “Eventually we hope to take some aesthetic services down there as well.”

He’s planning to expand to western Kansas next year.

Cheatum says the expansions should save a lot of his customers a drive.

“It’s nice to be closer to them so they can get services more conveniently.”

Mitchell family buys two more theaters

WICHITA — The Mitchell family, a farming family that bought its first theater in Newton five years ago, has purchased two more.

“This hobby just keeps getting bigger and bigger,” says Brian Mitchell, joking about what’s becoming a big business for the family along with the couple of shopping centers it owns.

The family, which includes Mitchell’s brother Brent, a Martin Pringle lawyer, bought Central 6 Cinema in El Dorado and Cowley Cinema 8 in Winfield from B&B Theatres.

The family also owns Chisholm Trail 8 in Newton, Northridge Cinema 8 in Guymon, Okla., SouthGate 6 in Liberal, and Sequoyah 9 Theatre in Garden City.

“We’ve just been looking at various properties through the Midwest,” Mitchell says. “The main thing is we like to own our own buildings. . . . That’s the farmer in us.”

The theaters were built in 2004 and 2005, so Brian Mitchell says there isn’t much renovating to do. More “refreshing,” as he puts it.
