Urgent care treatment is provided by physicians-without an appointment-and includes diagnostic imaging and laboratory services.
As insurance deductibles rise, St. Vincent is providing ways to lower your out-of-pocket expenses. When you visit a St. Vincent Immediate Care Center, you pay your office-visit co-pay instead of the higher urgent or emergency care co-pay, which can result in substantial savings. If you do not have health insurance we accept checks, cash, Visa, MasterCard and Discover. You can expect your out-of-pocket cost to be about the same as visiting a physician's office.
No appointments are necessary at St. Vincent Immediate Care Centers.

St. Vincent personnel wear ID badges that are white with black lettering and include the St. Vincent doves symbol, a photo of the employee, and the person's title and/or department. All of our associates have one goal in mind: to care for you, our patient, to bring about your recovery as thoroughly and as quickly as possible.
Our associates are highly trained and directed by the philosophy of the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, which calls upon them to protect and promote the dignity and rights of each person as they participate in the healing ministry of Christ.
Our physicians are members of the St. Vincent medical staff. Physicians consult with the nursing staff and possibly other medical personnel and are ultimately responsible for your medical care. If your doctor is in private practice, his/her services provided to you while in the hospital will be billed separately.
Our St. Vincent nursing staff are at the center of your health care team and are committed to providing you with exceptional nursing care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your nurses carry out your physician's orders for medical treatment and respond to your needs.
Use the nurse call system in your room to contact the nurses' station. Please feel free to ask your nurse if you have questions about your care at St. Vincent. A representative from hospital administration is also available upon request 24 hours a day by calling the hospital operator (0) from the phone in your room.
St. Vincent plays an important role in educating physicians and specialists. As a teaching medical center, care may be given to you by resident chaplains, physicians, and medical or nursing students during your stay. St. Vincent provides advanced experience for graduate physicians who are pursuing specialty training.
Professionals in training are called residents and are always under supervision. A doctor may also be called an “intern” or “house physician.” Residents may participate in your care under the supervision of your own physician, who is the “attending physician.” The availability and thoughtful contributions of house physicians are considered a vital part of high-quality patient care.
Along with nurses and physicians, your medical care rests in the hands of numerous health care specialists. These include technologists in radiology and other departments, medical technologists in the laboratory, physical and occupational therapists, pharmacists, dietitians, chaplains, social workers, and many others who are available upon your request.
Numerous associates who are vital to the operation of St. Vincent Fishers, provide support to the doctors and nurses. These include administrators, unit managers, clerical workers, food and nutrition services personnel, housekeepers, maintenance workers, security officers, and others. Together, they support your caregivers and help make your stay at St. Vincent as pleasant as possible.
Over 1,000 volunteers regularly give their time at St. Vincent facilities, providing many services to enhance patient comfort. Volunteers deliver mail and flowers, work in the gift shop, provide assistance to patients and their families, and perform many other duties in nearly every hospital department. These volunteers in red shirts or jackets give an important gift to St. Vincent patients and visitors—their compassion, time, and service.
If you have concerns regarding the care you receive from any member of our care team or other concerns about your hospital stay, please contact one of the following associates:
St. Vincent recognizes outstanding job performance, conscientious service, cooperation with fellow associates, and adherence to the St. Vincent philosophy, mission, and values. Nomination forms for Service Excellence awards are available through your nurse.

Whether you are currently healthy or facing a health challenge, it is important to consider what your wishes would be if you were unable to give direction to your medical caregivers because of unforeseen circumstances.
Regardless of the reason for your upcoming hospital stay, now is a good time to consider documenting your wishes so that family members will be confident making decisions on your behalf should it ever become necessary. Thinking about your preferences and discussing them with family and friends is important.
Documents called advance directives will make your wishes known to your physician. These documents state your choices for health care or appoint someone to make those choices for you if you are unable to do so.
If you already have advance directives, please bring a copy with you to the hospital at the time of your admission.
The Patient Self-Determination Act went into effect on Dec. 1, 1991. This act requires hospitals, nursing facilities and other health care organizations to inform patients about advance directives by giving them written information at the time they are admitted.
If the patient has executed such a document, the signed document will then become a part of the patient's medical file for that admission only.
For years, fewer than 10 percent of all Americans had executed an advance directive. However, with the new law, both the young and old are encouraged to put their health care wishes in writing while they are still healthy and able to make these decisions.
Three types of advance directives can be prepared at St. Vincent Fishers Hospital. Call Pastoral Care at 317-338-2238 for assistance.
A fourth type of advance directive is also an option but cannot be prepared at St. Vincent. Many people consult an attorney for the preparation of this document:
If you need additional information about how to execute an advance directive, please call Pastoral Care at 317-338-2238. After business hours, please ask your nurse to page the hospital chaplain.
