The St. Vincent Neighborhood hospital, 9460 E. 146th Street, Noblesville, will open today, July 17 at 2pm and will specialize in 24/7 emergency services and inpatient care. The 17,000 square foot facility will include seven emergency beds, eight inpatient rooms, imaging, pharmacy and lab services.
The opening of neighborhood hospitals is part of St. Vincent’s strategy to provide high quality care to patients that provides a shorter wait time and is closer to their homes. Patients being treated at St. Vincent’s neighborhood hospital can expect to be seen within 15 minutes of their arrival. These hospitals have the capabilities to treat acute injuries or illnesses that require emergency care as well as inpatient services. In addition, patients will receive the same compassionate and personalized care that they’ve become accustomed to by St. Vincent Neighborhood hospital physicians and registered nurses.
“Our neighborhood hospitals are smaller than traditional hospitals, but have the capabilities to treat injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention,” said Dr. Richard Fogel, Chief Clinical Officer, St. Vincent. “Our goal is to ensure that each patient has an excellent experience in our hospitals by setting the standard for convenient access to care across central Indiana.”
Plans are underway to open additional neighborhood hospitals in Avon, Castleton and Plainfield later this year and in 2018. For more information about our Noblesville neighborhood hospital visit www.stvincentneighborhoodhospital.org.
