The city of Indianapolis is considered something of a healthcare hub in the Midwest. New arrivals to Indy will be glad to know that the metro is covered by no less than four major healthcare systems namely Community Health Network (Community), Indianapolis University Health (IU Health), Franciscan Alliance’s Franciscan Health (Franciscan), and Ascension’s St. Vincent Health (St. Vincent), all with flagship centres in downtown Indy.
The city is also home to the state’s only medical school and the national headquarters of the American College of Sports Medicine.
Although healthcare in Indianapolis is slightly more affordable than the American average, it is still rather expensive and health plans would have to be considered carefully before expats move to the city. Insurance schemes are vast and varied, and require some research, but are ultimately a necessity to ensure the health of one’s family.
The city is divided into four rough quadrants, each one dominated by one of the four major healthcare systems, which in turn oversees a number of hospitals. Below we list the major hospitals in Indianapolis.
