Riverview Health Offers New Walk-in Clinic for Orthopedic and Sports Injuries

July 28, 2017

Riverview Health is proud to offer an after-hours walk-in clinic at its Hazel Dell-New Hope Orthopedics and Sports Medicine office in Carmel.

“We understand that injuries don’t happen when it is most convenient,” said Nikki Swiney, vice president of Ambulatory, Sports and Lab Services at Riverview Health. “We want to make sure we’re there for those who may have an injury from after-school sports or weekend activities. Our experienced and knowledgeable providers and staff will be able to treat injuries that don’t require a visit to the emergency room, like sudden aches or pains, sprains and other injuries resulting from physical activity.”

The clinic is open Monday-Friday from 4-6 p.m. and Saturday from 8-10 a.m., and will be staffed by an orthopedics and sports medicine team including Roy Henderson, MD, Joseph Hui, MD, Stephen Jacobsen, MD, and Ron Harper, PA. Appointments are not required, and patients will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Long-term problems, like overuse injuries and chronic joint pain, are best treated by making an appointment at a Riverview Health orthopedic and sports medicine practice for a thorough evaluation.
