Franciscan Alliance, the hospital system based in Mishawaka, has established Franciscan Physician Network to unite the system’s growing number of employed doctors under one name. Franciscan Physician Network has more than 750 physicians at 260 practice locations. The rebranding changes the name of Franciscan’s 200 employed doctors in central Indiana, who went by the name St. Francis Medical Group. Franciscan Alliance operates three hospitals in central Indiana—in Indianapolis, Mooresville and now a short-stay hospital in Carmel. Other groups that are also part of the Franciscan Physician Network include Sigma Medical Group in West Central Indiana, the Woman’s Clinic, Lafayette OB/GYN and Premier Healthcare for Women in Lafayette, Athens Medical Group in Crawfordsville, and HealthPartners Medical Group, Medical Associates and Hammond Clinic in Northern Indiana.

An Indiana University study has found that what people studied in college had a direct effect on their chances of employment during the Great Recession. According to the Associated Press, people with degrees in health, education and biology/life sciences had the best chance of getting and holding a job from 2009 to 2010. Only one out of every 44 graduates in those fields found themselves unemployed, according to data analyzed by the Indiana Business Research Center at IU's Kelley School of Business. By contrast, one out of every 13 people with degrees in architecture, industrial arts, consumer services and engineering suffered unemployment in 2009 and 2010. The study used data from the Indiana Workforce Intelligence System to examine the employment history of 178,000 people living in Indiana who graduated from state public colleges and universities.

The Cancer Care Group in Indianapolis said a laptop computer bag containing private information on as many as 55,000 patients has been stolen. The bag was stolen from a Cancer Care Group employee's locked vehicle on July 19, the physician group said in a prepared statement. The Cancer Care Group, headquartered at 6100 W. 96th St., is one of the largest radiation oncology private physician practices in the country, with more than 20 oncologists. The bag also contained similar information about the group’s employees. The group said the bag has not been recovered, but there has been no evidence to suggest the information has been used. Patients and employees have been notified of the theft.

Family Physicians of Carmel, a three-doctor practice, has joined St. Vincent Medical Group. The new physicians joining St. Vincent are Dr. Daniel Crabb, Dr. Rhys Jones and Dr. Stephen Lang. Crabb and Lang earned their medical degrees from the Indiana University School of Medicine. Jones earned a degree from the University of Western Ontario Medical School of London in Ontario, Canada.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
