Mishawaka-based Franciscan Health has opened its latest ExpressCare location. The health system has invested $1 million to open the facility in Hobart, which has created a small number of jobs.
The clinic, located at 101 W. 61st Avenue in Hobart, is open from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The ExpressCare aims to provide a convenient alternative to the emergency room, allowing patients with non-life-threatening injuries to be seen and diagnosed by a healthcare provider with no appointment.
Franciscan says the Hobart location also includes Franciscan WorkingWell occupational health services, which gives businesses a range of services from wellness and education to rehabilitation. A spokesperson for Franciscan tells Inside INdiana Business the new clinic has added eight jobs.
Late last month, Franciscan opened the ExpressCare CityWay location in downtown Indianapolis. The health system has 14 ExpressCare locations throughout the state.
