St. Vincent is planning to open four free-standing emergency hospitals in the Indianapolis area to bridge the gap between the urgent care center and an acute-care emergency department.
The four facilities — planned for Noblesville, Castleton, Avon and Plainfield — will offer round-the-clock emergency care with the option of overnight stays for patients who need it. Each hospital will have seven outpatient beds and eight in-patient beds.
Also known as micro-hospitals, the emergency hospitals are part of St. Vincent’s strategy to provide care to patients closer to their homes. Earlier this year, St. Vincent entered into an agreement with Kroger’s Little Clinic to provide care at 10 in-store clinics.
