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 regional organization and nearly 600 employees.  It is Indiana’s largest Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).

Through its network of 8 community-based, comprehensive primary care health centers, 4 dental clinics, one OB/GYN care center, a pediatric/adolescent care center, 9 school-based clinics, and support services, HealthNet annually provides affordable health care to more than 60,929 individuals – most of whom live at or below the federal poverty level. In 2017, the centers accounted for over 272,645 patient visits.
