- Franciscan St Francis Health – Indianapolis
The Franciscan St. Francis Health-Indianapolis started out with a unique partnership of three entities of people that combined their time and efforts in putting up this health system. The three groups are the citizens of the community of Beech Grove, the clergymen of the Holy Name Catholic Church and the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration.
Two of the sisters went on a trip from their convent in Lafayette, IN down south to Indianapolis in 1909. Holy Name Catholic Church Monsignor Peter Killian welcomed them and the three surveyed several spots. They finally agreed on the site at the corner of Sherman Drive and Troy Avenue.
Immediately after settling for the spot, the nuns and the Beech Grove citizens went to work. Construction started in 1913 which signified the birth of the best health care provider of Beech Grove, Indiana. This was the start of the best health care system in the community.
In 1914, the St. Francis Hospital was opened to the public which houses 75 rooms , a number of operating rooms and an emergency department.
Nearly a century later in 2012, the health system now operates hospitals and health care facilities in Carmel and Mooresville, IN.
With all of these schools consolidating their efforts and time in trying to solve the nursing shortage in Indiana, the problem will certainly be solved sooner than what people might think.
