PLANO, Texas, February 15, 2018 – INtuitive Health, a pioneer in retail healthcare, with their Legacy ER & Urgent Care locations in North Texas, announces expansion into the Indianapolis market in partnership with Riverview Health. The newly formed joint venture will build four new retail clinics that offer both 24/7 emergency services and extended hour urgent care under one roof. These facilities will be built in highly convenient retail locations, offering patients easy access to treatment for everything from the common cold to a life-threatening emergency. Patients will only be billed for the level of care that they need, thus saving patients, employers, and payors millions in unnecessary ER costs while alleviating long waits at local hospital emergency rooms.
“Patients are demanding better transparency into the healthcare billing process, quicker care, and better service. We have focused on these specifics since 2008 and are now rated in the top 1 percent of all retailers in customer satisfaction. We are excited to partner with Riverview Health and bring this model to northern Indianapolis & Hamilton County,” said Thom Herrmann, CEO of INtuitive Health. “Riverview Health is a leading healthcare provider in Hamilton County which shares similar characteristics to our home market in North Texas. Our North Texas locations have become the go-to option for patients seeking high quality, convenient, immediate care and we believe the residents of Hamilton County will value our service the same way. The northern suburbs of Indianapolis are home to a lot of young families, as well as a healthy economy and great schools. Several of the communities are ranked nationally as highly desirable places to live. Fishers, Indiana was recently chosen as Money Magazine’s #1 place to live in the United States.”
“Partnering with the INtuitive team makes perfect sense for Riverview Health. We have a strong reputation for service and commitment to our community, and building these customer service oriented facilities will be a great fit,” said Seth Warren, President and CEO of Riverview Health.
