HealthNet today announced that the new HealthNet Northeast Health Center will open full-time on August 26, 2013 at 3908 Meadows Dr., Suite 1, inside the new Avondale Meadows Health & Wellness Center.

The first of its kind in the country, the Avondale Meadows Health & Wellness Center marks the latest milestone in the 100-acre neighborhood revitalization within the Meadows community on Indianapolis’ eastside. The $18 million, 70,000 square-foot, LEED-certified facility combines cutting-edge urban health care with state-of-the-art fitness and education programs that will be transformative for this neighborhood and the broader Indianapolis community. In addition to HealthNet Northeast, the facility includes the 32,000-square-foot Urban Mission YMCA, United Northeast Community Development Corporation and the Meadows Community Foundation.

A grand opening celebration for HealthNet Northeast and the Avondale Meadows Health & Wellness Center will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, September 9, 2013. The community is invited to attend.

The 18,000 sq. ft. health center will provide adult primary care, pediatrics, OB/GYN, social work services, integrated behavioral health services, lab services as well as access to discounted prescriptions. The health center is expected to serve 7,000 patients at capacity.

Construction of the health center was made possible by $4.95 million from IU Health, including $1 million from the Methodist Health Foundation’s Charles Lynn Trust.

The health center’s hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to noon on Friday. Same-day appointments are available. Medical services are delivered regardless of ability to pay, and the cost of care is based on a sliding fee scale and family income.
