Franciscan St. Francis to open Immediate Care at Castle Key Plaza

INDIANAPOLIS – Residents on Indianapolis’ far north side will continue to have a solid health care option with the Nov. 22 opening of Franciscan Immediate Care-Castle Key Plaza.

Located at 4257 E. 82nd St., the opening of this new facility is a relocation of services previously offered at Franciscan Immediate Care-Nora on E. 86th St., which closes Nov. 21.

Castle Key Plaza offers services 365 days a year from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. 

Franciscan Immediate Care-Castle Key Plaza provides urgent care treatment by physicians – without an appointment – for illnesses and injuries, including diagnostic imaging and lab services. This 5,500 square foot facility features seven exam rooms and two treatment rooms, an X-ray room, and is staffed with physicians, medical assistants, X-ray technicians and management staff.

“Immediate Care offers accessible, economical medical care to patients, particularly for those with minor injuries 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 Immediate Care operations in the Indianapolis area in late 2010.

In addition to its new location, Immediate Care operates facilities at 1001 N. Madison Ave. (Greenwood), 650 N. Girls School Road (Chapel Hill) and 5210 E. Thompson Road (Beech Grove) and 14641 U.S. 31 North (Carmel).

Launched in 1981 by the Bloomington, Ind.-based Unity Physician Group, Franciscan 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.
