We are pleased to share that effective June 1, Brownsburg Hospital is in-network for Anthem members in our community. This means that for the first time, patients with Anthem insurance will pay the same for our high-quality care whether they are treated at Brownsburg Hospital or our Danville Hospital.
Even out of Anthem’s network, Brownsburg Hospital has been wildly successful. Yet, this is an incredible win for those who matter most – our patients. Nearly 14,000 families in the areas surrounding Brownsburg Hospital are currently Anthem members driving to other Hendricks Regional Health facilities. They have chosen us as their healthcare partner, and now they have even more options closer to home. At the end of the day, we built this facility so that those who call Brownsburg, and the surrounding communities, home would have easier access to affordable, high-quality care. Since the day we started our negotiations with Anthem, we never stopped advocating for what was in our patients’ best interests.
The closure of this chapter opens a world of possibilities. We are moving forward with discussions on how to best expand what we do so well at our Danville campus into the Brownsburg Hospital. We are working hard to plan for the addition of services such as outpatient surgery, an intensive care unit, cardiology services, oncology services and maternity care. We have made these our priorities because our community has told us they are needed.
