Mishawaka-based Franciscan Health Inc. says it is closing its urgent care center in Carmel. The health system says the employees at its ExpressCare and WorkingWell services at Village Park Plaza will be retained and move to other area locations.
A spokesperson for Franciscan tells Inside INdiana Business major construction along U.S. 31 in Carmel has affected the number of patients coming into the facility, calling it an "ongoing challenge."
In a news release Friday, Franciscan Clinical Operations Director Debra Orange-Miller says patients can still utilize the health system’s online service, Franciscan On Demand, for future urgent care services. The health system adds patients can also visit other ExpressCare and WorkingWell locations in Greenwood, Mooresville, and the new location at CityWay in downtown Indianapolis, which opens later this month.
