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.”

The health system did not say why it was closing the centers or how many employees would be affected.

The facilities are walk-in clinics for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, such as sprains, cuts, allergies, pink eye, etc. More serious injuries are treated at emergency rooms.

On its website, Ascension St. Vincent lists more than 20 immediate care centers across the state, including 10 in the Indianapolis area.

UPDATE:

Here is a list of the locations that will close. An Ascension spokeswoman said that doctors’ offices attached to sites will remain open; only the walk-in clinics will close.

  • Frankfort Walk-In Care
  • Anderson Walk-In Care and Occupational Medicine
  • Elwood Walk-In Care and Occupational Health
  • Brownsburg Walk-In Care

    1. St. V has not issued a press release on this (at least not yet). Nor have they announced which sites will close, as the story says.

    2. This story is covered on an Evansville news channel and others as well, so if true, the closures could be anywhere. Very vague post by IBJ. Maybe the story should have been allowed to “develop” more before posting.

  1. They need the money to pay for the new building on 86th at the hospital bill. No story either on cutting jobs at their IT Medxcel division and making them go through the entire job, interview, paperwork, drug test etc. Losing any benefits or PTO they had acquired being at St Vincent.
