Riverview Health is pleased to announce that the emergency room at its main campus in Noblesville is now an emergency room (ER) combined with an urgent care.
“We’ve found that the ER and urgent care combination model that we first launched at our Westfield Hospital and then our new stand-alone facilities in Fishers and Carmel to be helpful for those in our community who need immediate medical care close by and are just not sure where to go,” said Seth Warren, president and CEO at Riverview Health. “So, we’re excited to now offer this patient-centered healthcare experience at our Noblesville campus that will be complementary to our already high-quality ER services and staff.”
The ER services will be available 24/7, while the urgent care hours will be 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. An ER physician will see all patients, regardless of the level of service needed. However, patients will only be billed for the level of care that is provided. This is the same model that is currently at the Riverview Health Westfield Hospital and all Riverview Health Emergency Room & Urgent Care locations, which includes Fishers, Carmel and West Carmel/Zionsville set to open later this month.
