St. Vincent To Build 4 Micro Hospitals In Central Indiana

Last updated on Tuesday, August 23, 2016

(INDIANAPOLIS) - An Indianapolis-based health group says it plans to open four emergency micro hospitals in central Indiana.

St. Vincent announced Monday it will open the hospitals in Noblesville, Avon, Plainfield and the Castleton area of Indianapolis in mid- to late 2017. CEO Jonathan Nalli says they'll provide 24-hour emergency care for ailments such as dehydration from a gastrointestinal illness or a deep cut.

Each hospital will be staffed at all times with an emergency room physician and have ultrasound, X-ray and CT scan capabilities. Each will have seven outpatient beds and eight in-patient beds.

The Indianapolis Star reports the emergency hospitals are part of St. Vincent's strategy to provide care to patients closer to their homes. It already operates several full-service hospitals in the Indianapolis area.
