WMMC Physician Retirements & Practice Mergers

After years of serving our local community, two Western Missouri Medical Center (WMMC) physicians are retiring. Drs. Jayendra Astik and Stuart Smith will be retiring from Warrensburg Internal Medicine on April 1, 2022, and April 30, 2022, respectively.

Drs. Brad Carper and Sridhar Thirumalai will continue to provide services for Drs. Astik’s and Smith’s patients at Warrensburg Internal Medicine moving forward.

Additionally, to ensure our patients continue to receive the outstanding care they deserve, we are excited to announce that Western Missouri Internal Medicine and Warrensburg Internal Medicine are merging practices. This merger will go into effect on May 2, 2022. Dr. Syed Hasan will continue to provide services for his patients at Warrensburg Internal Medicine starting in May.

“Drs. Astik and Smith have seen healthcare change significantly over the years,” said Darinda Dick, President and CEO of WMMC. “And throughout these changes, they have remained pillars in our community and dedicated their lives to caring for their patients. Without primary care physicians who chose to call Warrensburg their home, we could not provide the care we do to so many in need. We are truly grateful for their years of service, and we wish them the best of luck in their new chapter! On behalf of WMMC and our entire community, thank you!”
