Ascension St. Vincent plans to close 11 immediate-care centers on Thursday, a move certain to affect scores of employees as well as patients who use those centers.
The Indianapolis-based health system confirmed the closings to IBJ on Wednesday morning in a two-sentence statement, but provided no information on why it was closing the facilities.
“Ascension Medical Group St. Vincent will be closing 11 Immediate Care Centers effective end of business on June 30, 2022,” the statement said. “Impacted associates are being offered a comparable position at one of our many sites of care.”
