Indiana University Health hired Mary Beth Claus as its general counsel, replacing Norm Tabler, who retired from IU Health in December. However, Tabler has now agreed to return to the Indianapolis law firm Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, where he practiced before joining the hospital system in the 1990s. Claus, who is also a former partner at Faegre Baker Daniels, was most recently deputy chief legal officer and director of health care regulatory affairs for the Cleveland Clinic, where she oversaw all the medical center’s regulatory and legal compliance matters. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati and a law degree from Indiana University. Tabler will rejoin Faegre Baker Daniels’ health care practice, which he once chaired. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, a master’s degree from Yale University, and a law degree from Columbia University.

Dr. Troy Payner, president and managing partner at Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine, has been appointed clinical chief of neuroscience for St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital. He will maintain his clinical practice. Payner also serves as vice chairman of neurological surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He earned his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

Indianapolis-based Dow AgroSciences announced Monday that former Indiana Director of Agriculture Joseph Kelsay is joining the company’s global regulatory and government affairs teams as senior manager of biotechnology affairs. Kelsay had served under former Gov. Mitch Daniels as director of Indiana’s State Department of Agriculture since 2009 before leaving the post this month under the change in administrations. Gov. Mike Pence last week appointed Gina Sheets to replace Kelsay. He holds a degree in agricultural economics from Purdue University.

WellPoint Inc. named Patrick Blair its chief marketing officer. He most recently served as chief marketing and development officer for Amerigroup Corp., which WellPoint acquired in December for $4.9 billion. Blair received his bachelor’s degree in economics and master’s degree in health administration from Indiana University. He also holds an MBA from Henley Business School at the University of Reading in England.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
