INDIANAPOLIS -

The state's newest psychiatric hospital is now hiring for a variety of positions. The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration says the $120 million NeuroDiagnostic Institute and Advanced Treatment Center is undergoing the final leg of construction and will open in the spring of 2019 on the campus of Community East Hospital in Indianapolis.

The NDI is hiring management and staff nurses, social workers, behavioral health recovery attendants, and recreational therapists, among many other positions. The FSSA says employees will begin with extensive training at Larue Carter Memorial Hospital in Indy and then transition to the NDI in 2019.

"This is an exciting time for our agency and the ideal time to join our state psychiatric hospital system as one of the first employees at the new NDI," said Jerry Sheward, who will serve as superintendent and medical director. "This new facility is a crucial part of our reengineered statewide treatment system, where we will introduce novel models of care, using modern genetic and imaging techniques to deliver more precise diagnoses, faster stabilizations and effective treatment plans for incoming patients."

The FSSA says nurses and behavioral health recovery attendants will work a 12.5 hour shift, three times per week. You can view more information about the open positions by clicking here.

Plans for the NDI were first announced in December 2016 by then-Governor Mike Pence, who said the facility will serve as the centerpiece of the state's "ongoing commitment to improve mental health care and address the scourge of addictions in Indiana." The institute, which will ultimately replace Larue Carter Memorial Hospital, will have 159 beds and the capacity to treat 1,500 patients annually.
