The New Facility Will Offer Convenient, Quick Access to Quality Emergency Room and Urgent Care in Hamilton County
NOBLESVILLE, Indiana (July 15, 2020) – Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care is proud to announce the opening of its newest combined emergency room and urgent care facility in Hamilton County. Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care—Carmel will open on Monday, Aug. 3 at 7 a.m. This facility is located at 14585 Hazel Dell Parkway, on the southeast corner of 146th Street and Hazel Dell Parkway.
“As we continue to expand throughout Hamilton County, our goal is to help individuals when unplanned medical needs arise,” said Seth Warren, Riverview Health president and CEO. “We are excited to continue our partnership with Intuitive Health to bring convenient care to our neighbors in Carmel.”
Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care—Carmel is the second of three new freestanding facilities planned in the northern Indianapolis suburbs. The first facility, Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care—Fishers, opened in November 2019. An additional facility is planned to open in West Carmel/Zionsville later this year.
“We are excited to grow our strong partnership with Riverview Health,” said Thom Hermann, CEO of Intuitive Health. “Together we are bringing value-based care and changing the way patients access, receive and pay for healthcare.”
Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care—Carmel elevates the patient experience while eliminating the need for patients to self-diagnose and remove guesswork, all while ensuring patients are billed accurately.
The combined ER and urgent care facility handles both emergent and non-emergent cases. ER services will be available 24/7, while urgent care hours will be from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. All patients are examined by an ER-trained physician and cared for by ER staff, regardless of the level of care they need. Patients then are billed only for the level of care received.
Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care is in-network with most major insurance plans, including all Medicare plans.
