About Wheat State Credit Union Serving Wichita, KS
A St. Joseph Hospital employee, microbiologist Dennis Carr, first introduced the credit union idea, and St. Joseph Hospital Employees’ Credit Union was chartered in 1963. The name was changed to Medical Community Credit Union in 1998 and to Wheat State Credit Union in 2015 to better reflect the expanded field of membership we now serve. Over 50 years later, we are still going strong.
Wheat State Credit Union is made up of people like you who live in Kansas. We are a member-owned nonprofit financial cooperative who is dedicated to improving our members’ financial standing. Our members have a say in how the credit union operates with voting privileges at the annual membership meetings.
Directors and members serve on a volunteer basis. What other savings institution gives you that kind of democratic control?
