The $48 million Hendricks Regional Health Brownsburg Hospital is officially open. The healthcare provider says the 100,000 square-foot center houses the county's first side-by-side emergency department and immediate care center. Officials broke ground on the project in April of 2016 and in August, Hendricks Regional Health began the hiring process for more than 100 workers added as a result of the new facility. During a 2015 interview in the Business of Health, Chief Strategy Officer Gary Everling told Barbara Lewis the facility is entering a highly-competitive central Indiana market.

Features include:

  • enhanced sports medicine and women's services
  • inpatient unit
  • physical, speech and occupational therapy space
  • cardiology testing
  • cardiac rehabilitation
  • laboratory and imaging services
  • a multi-specialty clinic
  • Brownsburg North Family Medicine, Hendricks Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and New Life Associates for OB-GYN care physician offices.
  • heated helipad

Chief Executive Officer Kevin Speer says "by expanding our services to Brownsburg and providing access to high-quality care close to home, we're building a stronger health system that truly puts our patients first. We are proud to further our mission in delivering truly innovative, patient-centered health care to our community."

The health care provider's existing medical office building in Brownsburg will continue to serve the south side of the town and northwest side of Avon. Hendricks Regional Health launched in Hendricks County in 1962. You can connect to more about the new facilities by clicking here.
