Story

Windrose Health Network (WHN) came into existence in the Fall of 1996 as a Rural Health Center based in Trafalgar, Indiana. It was born out of a shared vision by citizens of Trafalgar and leadership from Johnson Memorial Hospital to create an access point for primary medical care services for people in Southern Johnson County.

In December of 2003, WHN officially became a Federally-Qualified Health Center. With grant support from the Bureau of Primary Health Care, WHN continued to grow and served about 5,700 patients in 2004.

At the request of community leaders in Hope, Indiana, WHN opened a small clinic in the Community Center of Hope in September 2006. This was the first medical provider the town had seen in more than 20 years.

Two years later, WHN noticed that large numbers of patients were coming from Greenwood and Indianapolis. As a result, in September of 2008, WHN opened a 4th Health Center on the South Side of Indianapolis, which quickly grew to become its largest and most diverse Health Center.

WHN quickly outgrew its small clinic in Hope and in September 2010, WHN broke ground on a new state-of-the-art 9-exam room facility, creating the town’s first permanent Health Center.

In 2014, responding to a growing physician shortage in the town of Franklin, WHN relocated its Edinburgh practice to a larger, fully renovated facility in Franklin. The practice was fully renovated and even added a new Convenient Care Center in late 2015.

Presently, WHN employs more than 150 people – – including 28 clinicians – – and serves over 20,000 patients at (6) locations in Trafalgar, Whiteland,Franklin, Hope, and the South Side of Indianapolis.

A year later, in 2015, after undergoing seven years of explosive growth at its South Indy location, WHN split the practice into (2) brand new facilities – – one near Community Hospital South & and one near Epler Road and US 31.

Finally, in 2017, in partnership with Johnson Memorial Hospital, WHN opened a pediatric clinic in the town of Whiteland. Presently, WHN employs more than 150 people – – including 28 clinicians – – and serves over 20,000 patients at (6) locations in Trafalgar, Whiteland, Franklin, Hope, and the South Side of Indianapolis.
