Franciscan St. Francis to open Immediate Care Center near Beech Grove

Medical services slated to relocate from Washington Square

BEECH GROVE, Ind. -- Residents here and on the near south side of Indianapolis will soon have a new health care option with Immediate Care Center-Thompson Commons.

The Center, located at 5210 E. Thompson Road (near Interstate 465 and Emerson Ave.), will open Tuesday, March 27, offering services seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The facility is relocating from its present location at 992 North Mitthoeffer Road at Washington Square, which closes 11 p.m., Monday, March 26.

ICC-Thompson Commons provides urgent care treatment by physicians – without an appointment – for illnesses and injuries, including diagnostic imaging and lab services. The facility features six exam rooms and two treatment rooms, and is staffed by 14 medical assistants, X-ray technicians and management.

“Immediate Care Centers offer accessible, economical medical care to patients, particularly for those with minor accidents and illnesses who don’t require a visit to a hospital emergency room,” said Robert J. Brody, president and chief executive officer for Franciscan St. Francis Health, which acquired ICC operations in the Indianapolis area in late 2010.

In addition to its new location, ICC operates facilities at 1001 N. Madison Ave. (Greenwood), 650 N. Girls School Road (Chapel Hill), and 860 E. 86th St. (Nora).

“Together with Franciscan St. Francis, we are committed to provide mission-based compassionate care to families in Beech Grove and the many communities we serve,” said Michael D. Bishop, M.D., president and chief executive officer of the Immediate Care Centers.

ICC-Thompson Commons is located near Franciscan St. Francis’ newly expanded hospital at 8111 S. Emerson Ave. Patients in the area have other health care alternatives, including:

  • Beech Grove After-Hours Clinic, 2030 Churchman Ave., in the offices of St. Francis Medical Group Beech Grove Family Medicine.
  • Indy South After-Hours Clinic, 7855 S. Emerson Ave., Suite P, in the offices of St. Francis Medical Group Southport Family and Sports Medicine.

The After-Hours Clinics are open 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays; and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays.

Launched in 1981 by the Bloomington, Ind.-based Unity Physician Group, the four Immediate Care Centers collectively see about 100,000 patients each year. Each facility is always staffed by at least one physician and a highly trained staff committed to service excellence.
