Two out-of-state companies that want to build a 60-bed hospital in Carmel have a history of mass layoffs, at least one high-profile bankruptcy, and accusations of kickbacks and billing irregularities.
The transitional care hospital, which has lost money in two of the past three years, will reopen next year as Community Rehabilitation Hospital South.
The scale is small, and that’s what St. Vincent Health sees as a big selling point to its newest hospital: convenience and quick care—15 minutes or less to see a doctor, and just a few minutes from home for people who live in Noblesville.
St. Vincent will expand its footprint in central Indiana by opening eight small hospitals where patients can get treated for medical conditions that aren’t life-threatening. The first four locations were announced Monday.
St. Vincent Heart Center is seeking city permission to build a helipad on church-owned property south of 103rd Street in Carmel, about a half-mile from the specialty hospital.
