When medical issues arise, they are often hard to diagnose. Trying to decide whether symptoms warrant urgent or emergency care can waste valuable time and money. However, citizens of Hamilton County are no longer faced with this challenge. Instead, they can leave the decision to the professionals in their neighborhood at the new Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care facilities.
Riverview Health introduced the first-ever combined emergency room and urgent care to Hamilton County at Riverview Health Westfield Hospital. This facility has a full-service, 24-hour emergency room, combined with an urgent care that operates from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. This model allows patients to be guided to the level of care they need and billed for the level of care received—all at the same convenient location.
Since the development of Riverview Health Westfield Hospital, Riverview Health has continued its growth throughout Hamilton County. In November 2019, Riverview Health opened its first freestanding emergency room and urgent care facility in Fishers. In spring 2020, Riverview Health will open its second freestanding emergency room and urgent care, which will be located in Carmel.
The growth doesn’t stop there. Riverview Health has broken ground in West Carmel/Zionsville and plans to open this fall. Riverview Health also plans to open its fourth stand-alone emergency room and urgent care, which will be located in the Nora area of Indianapolis.
“We continue to expand throughout Hamilton County,” said Seth Warren, president and CEO of Riverview Health. “And we are excited to provide high-quality, convenient care that also includes the best customer service to more and more patients.”
No one really plans for a medical issue to arise. So, when it does, Riverview Health strives to make it as easy as possible for you and your family to get the care you need.
