Family Medicine program settles into new digs

The Family Medicine Residency Program recently made the move from Beech Grove late last month and into an area with larger spaces and closer access to the Indianapolis campus.

The program consists of five directors and 20 residents. While they are now closer to and easily servicing Indianapolis Campus, there is still a team at Beech Grove until the consolidation in March.

“This location will better serve our patients, as the lab and many ancillary services as well as several specialists are very close by,” said Carrie Anderson, M.D., associate director of the program.

Previously, residency activities, such as noon conferences, were held in different parts of the hospital. Now, they are held in the same location as the office and residents at Beech Grove are able to join through video teleconference.

With new surroundings and new equipment, family residents are seeing patients in 27 exam rooms and three procedure suites. A conference room is available for education and support services. The new location has larger storage areas, expanded nursing stations and individual
spaces for the front office staff.

The St. Francis Family Medicine Center is located at at 5230-A building, Suite 250
and accepting new patients.
