Ascension St. Vincent closed the facility just five years after opening it as the first in a new model of tiny hospitals around central Indiana.
Ascension’s decision to require vaccinations follows similar mandates by all three other major health systems here.

The heavy investment in the campus—including a new women’s hospital and a brain and spine center—is the latest indication that Ascension St. Vincent is committed to the location, a major anchor along the busy West 86th Street corridor.
Three years after Indiana passed a law allowing doctors to prescribe drugs for patients without an in-person visit—using a computer, smartphone, video camera and similar technology—some health systems around the state are reporting higher use of virtual visits. St. Vincent, for example, sees hundreds of patients a month remotely for ailments ranging from minor rashes and sprains to follow-up visits for strokes.

Carmel has postponed a rezoning hearing on a developer’s vague plan to build a medical complex at 96th Street and Spring Mill Road for St. Vincent Health. Carmel officials say they won’t consider a rezoning without specifics about the project.
But Jonathan Nalli said the health system has no plans to build a $1 billion hospital complex.
More than 100 people gathered Tuesday to plan how to oppose the project, which calls for nine buildings, two helipads and four parking garages.
