INDIANAPOLIS -

Eskenazi Health is celebrating the opening of its new outpatient rehabilitation center at the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital in downtown Indianapolis. The health system has invested more than $2 million in the facility, which will provide treatment for orthopaedic, musculoskeletal and neurological conditions.

Eskenazi says the center will provide additional rehabilitation services, including pelvic floor health, cognitive therapy, amputee rehab, specialized care for hand injuries and splinting needs. Therapists will also have the opportunity to practice in a joint venture integrating emergency and outpatient rehab, which the health system says will provide greater continuity of care for patients.

"By expanding our outpatient rehab services to the main Eskenazi Health campus, we not only can take advantage of all the various services that are offered at the hospital such as integrating emergency, trauma and burn care into our services, but we can also provide more convenience to our patients," said Lori Thorp, associate vice president of Eskenazi Health Rehabilitation and Patient Support Services.

The center is located on the first floor of the hospital in an existing area that was previously not in use. A spokesperson for Eskenazi Health tells Inside INdiana Business the health system is adding seven staff members to its rehabilitation team as a result of the new services, and will continue to expand as patient volume grows.

The downtown location joins Eskenazi Health’s other outpatient rehabilitation centers on the east and west sides of Indianapolis.
