History

HealthNet is a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) corporation providing primary care health services to the medically underserved.

Since 1968, HealthNet has improved the health status of Indianapolis’ inner-city neighborhoods by making quality health services accessible to everyone. From its beginnings in a converted bank building staffed by one physician, HealthNet has grown to a citywide organization with 19 locations and 630 employees.  It is Indiana’s largest Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).

Through its network of 9 community-based, comprehensive primary care health centers, 5 dental clinics, one OB/GYN care center, a pediatric/adolescent care center, a maternal-fetal medicine center, 7 school-based clinics, and support services, HealthNet annually provides affordable health care to more than 60,956 individuals – most of whom live at or below the federal poverty level. In 2016, the centers accounted for over 270,108 patient visits.
