The roots of HealthNet in the Indianapolis community actually date back to 1968, when the first facility was opened. Over the years, 75 percent of its clients have lived at or below the federal poverty level. The need for expansion hit a crescendo in 2010, when the facilities across the state accounted for 225,987 patient visits.
The facility is 4,500 square feet, however, there is an additional 2,000 square feet they hope to add on as it becomes necessary. It is behind the Wendy’s restaurant on 10th Street, across from Lowe’s.
There will be an open house for the community to meet Cantrell and the staff from 4 to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17.
