Eskenazi Health


The Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital is Indianapolis, Indiana’s, first hospital, and one of the five largest safety-net health systems in the nation. The hospital and its health centers provide expert medical care to nearly one million patients each year.

Located in the Heartland of America and in the Heart of Indiana, Eskenazi Health and its physicians, all members of the Indiana University School of Medicine faculty, provide a comprehensive range of primary and specialty care services. We have a 315-bed hospital and inpatient facilities as well as 11 community health centers and 17 outpatient mental health clinics in Indianapolis. In 2011, when Sidney and Lois Eskenazi were moved to make their extraordinary $40 million gift to help build the new hospital campus, the goal was to provide a state-of-the-art facility to match the excellent care already being delivered and to serve as a health care model for the nation.

Today, Eskenazi leads the industry in innovative health care, establishing Indiana’s first Level 1 adult trauma center, the region’s only adult burn center, Indianapolis’ first electronic medical records, and Indiana’s first community mental health center.

Eskenazi Health is committed to improving patient outcomes and reducing costs system-wide.

Accredited by The Joint Commission, Eskenazi Health has nationally recognized programs, including Sandra Eskenazi Mental Health Center and the Eskenazi Health Center Primary Care – Center of Excellence in Women’s Health, and is the supervising hospital for Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services, the city’s primary EMS provider.
