For the fourth consecutive year, Clarian Health’s Methodist Hospital made the list of the top-five hospitals that are part of U.S. academic medical centers. The University HealthSystem Consortium based its rankings on its annual Quality and Accountability Study, which includes 98 academic medical centers around the country. The study examines hospitals on such issues as safety, timeliness, effectiveness, efficiency, equity and patient-centeredness. The other four hospitals honored this year were the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.; the University of Utah Hospitals in Salt Lake City; the University Medical Center in Tuscon, Ariz.; and the Lehigh Valley Health Network in Allentown, Pa. Clarian Health is a joint venture of Methodist Hospital and the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Community Health Network will add three slots to its family medicine residency program and restructure the program’s curriculum around the medical home concept. The Indianapolis-based hospital system has received $2.4 million from three federal grants to fund the changes. Community will use $1.3 million over five years from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop the medical home concept, which attempts to let one family physician coordinate all the primary care needs of one patient, rather than having patients on their own go to numerous doctors for primary care. A second $960,000 grant will allow Community to expand yearly family residents from 21 to 24. The three extra slots will all be filled by doctors trained in osteopathic medicine. And a third grant of $213,000 will help Community buy needed equipment to support its program expansion. Community is the second local institution in a month to expand its family residency program. In late September, the Indiana University School of Medicine said it would use $1.9 million in stimulus funds to add two slots to its program in the Lafayette area.

Researchers at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Wyoming have genetically engineered silkworms to produce artificial spider silk in quantities large enough to be commercially viable. The researchers are working with Michigan-based Kraig Biocraft Laboratories to commercialize the technology for medical, industrial and consumer applications. Spider silk has significantly higher tensile strength and elasticity than natural silkworm fibers. Notre Dame researchers claim the silk produced by their genetically engineered silkworms have qualities much closer to spider silk. In the medical arena, researchers hope artifical spider silk could be used to make suture materials, wound-healing bandages, or natural scaffolds for tendon and ligament repair or replacement. They think the artifical spider silk also could be used to make bulletproof vests, strong and lightweight fabrics for athletic clothing and improved automobile airbags.

Indianapolis-based Adult and Child Center won $2 million from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to improve access to primary care for Americans with serious mental illnesses. Such patients die, on average, 25 years earlier than those without such conditions, according to a 2006 report by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors. During the four-year project, Adult and Child will have a primary-care physician and nurse care coordinator available to patients at its mental health center. The medical staff will try to address patients with mental illnesses who also suffer from chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

A $1.9 million federal stimulus grant will enable the Indiana University School of Medicine's department of family medicine to add two residents a year in the Lafayette area. IU’s family medicine residency program currently accepts 10 doctors annually for post-med-school training as family physicians. The grant will enable the program to add two residency slots in collaboration with Clarian Arnett Health, St. Elizabeth Regional Health and Riggs Community Health Center in Lafayette. IU med school officials hope graduates of the residency program will set up medical practices in and around Lafayette, which like much of Indiana has a shortage of primary-care physicians. The expansion of the residency program will be effective in July 2011.

Lilly Endowment Inc. gave $4 million to Indiana University to help address ethical, legal and social issues involved in the growing sharing and study of health information. IU will create the Center for Law, Ethics and Applied Research in Health Information (CLEAR Health Information). The center also will partner with government, industry and not-for-profit groups in an effort to increase reliability and trust in the use of health information.

Columbus Regional Hospital is suing the Federal Emergency Management Agency to recover $17.1 million in federal funds the hospital claims it is owed due to damages caused by a massive flood. The June 2008 flood, designated a federal disaster, caused $167 million in damages and business-income losses to the hospital, which did not fully reopen until nearly five months later. The suit, filed Sept. 15 in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, accuses FEMA of violating federal regulations, negligence and misrepresentation for failing to pay the full amount the hospital says it is owed. The flooding from nearby Haw Creek filled the hospital’s basement to the 12-foot ceiling and partially submerged the first floor. Key medical equipment destroyed by the flood included radiology scanners, radiography and fluoroscopy systems, ultrasounds, cardiac-catherization labs, biopsy tables and biochemical analyzers.

What’s it like working with one of the legends of contemporary dance—then taking over your own troupe? What does it feel like to be the only actor on stage for an hour-and-a-half play? What’s coming up in the 2010/2011 A&E season that you really need to put on your cultural radar?

Those are just some of the questions that will be answered at this free, open-to-the-public event. Lou Harry, IBJ arts & entertainment editor (that’s me), will discuss the season, interview David Hochoy of Dance Kaleidoscope and Milicent Wright of the Indiana Repertory Theatre, present performances by Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Principal Contrabassist Ju-Fang Liu and cast members of Actors Theatre of Indiana’s “A Year With Frog and Toad,” and lead audience participation games.

"Holes"

September 29, 2010

Through Nov. 6
Indiana Repertory Theatre

Those buses you see during the day outside the Indiana Repertory Theatre are from the dozens of schools that are making part of their curriculum a trip to the state’s largest regional theater.

And while exposing kids to the art of theater is a wonderful thing to do, I wouldn’t be writing about the IRT’s latest show, “Holes,” unless I thought the show would offer pleasures for grown-ups as well. I’m optimistic that’s the case because the Louis Sachar book is a treat, because the movie adaptation was wonderful, and because Sachar himself wrote the script for the theater version, which has been performed at regional theaters around the country.

Haven’t read or seen it? “Holes” concerns the secrets that are unearthed when an innocent kid is sent to an unusual desert correctional facility. Grown-up cast members include Constance Macy and Ben Tebbe (both last seen at Indy Fringe in ShadowApe’s “Not a Peep”). Details here.

I am, I’ll admit, irrational in my love for Samuel Barber’s “Knoxville Summer of 1915.” With text taken from James Agee’s book “A Death in the Family” (one of the handful that I reread every few years), it sets to music the author’s haunting meditation on mortality, as his narrator recalls idle moments with his family on a summer evening—tempered with the knowledge that all of it, some day, will pass. “By some chance, here they are, all on this earth;” writes Agee, “and who shall ever tell the sorrow of being on this earth, lying, on quilts, on the grass in a summer evening, among the sounds of the night.”

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
