NOBLESVILLE -

Noblesville-based Riverview Health has announced plans to construct four freestanding emergency departments that will include urgent care services. The health system says the retail model will focus on customer service and quick treatments.

Construction on the 10,000-square-foot buildings is set to begin this spring with all four locations expected to open in 2019. The facilities will be located in north Carmel, west Carmel, Fishers and the Nora area on the north side of Indianapolis.

Riverview is not disclosing the financial investment in the facilities, but says each one will employ about 80 people. Seth Warren, chief executive officer of Riverview, says as the area continues to grow, the demand for urgent and emergency care services has grown as well. 

“Often when unplanned medical needs arise, there’s the question of whether or not to go to the emergency room," said Warren. "With the emergency and urgent care combination, patients will have a single convenient access point close to home and be treated accordingly with the same high-quality healthcare of our full-service hospital in Noblesville."

Riverview says the ER services will be available at all hours of the day, while the urgent care services will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day. Patients will be seen by an ER physician regardless of the level of care they need, but they will only be billed for the level of care provided, which Warren says has the potential to save money for patients, employers and communities.

    • Hope is Not a Plan

      This is sobering. A local business broker in Indianapolis reports nine out of 10 business owners who want to sell are turned away. Of the one in 10 that does make it past the first analysis to sell, over half of those company owners don’t get the sale price they hope for or believe the business is worth. Bottom line, hope is not a plan if you want to sell your business.
