Caring for the Growing Needs of Our Community.

our mission

The mission of Windrose Health Network (WHN) is to improve the health of both its patients and the communities it serves by providing high-quality, family-oriented, primary and preventive health care services, with a particular emphasis on helping the poor, the medically under served and vulnerable residents. As a Federally-Qualified Health Center, WHN accepts all people regardless of ability to pay and helps patients overcome language, economic, cultural and geographical barriers to obtain health care services for themselves and for their families.


In the summer of 2002, a second Rural Health Center was opened in a high-need area of Edinburgh, Indiana. 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. 

WHN employed more than 150 healthcare professionals, including 28 clinicians, and served over 20,000 patients across six sites of care. Health Center locations include Trafalgar, Whiteland, Franklin, Hope, and the Southside of Indianapolis.

A year later in 2015, after undergoing seven years of extensive growth at the Southside Indianapolis location, WHN divided the practice into two sites of care. One Health Center was opened near Community Hospital South and the second Health Center at Epler Parke in the plaza area at the intersection of Epler Road and US 31.

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.

The Edinburgh Center facility underwent a renovation in 2019 and was scheduled to reopen later that winter but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A 38’ mobile unit was purchased in response to the 2020 worldwide COVID-19 pandemic to address the Coronavirus outbreak and provide mobile COVID-19 testing throughout the community. Furthermore, telehealth services were established to ensure patients had virtual access to care.

As of 2021, WHN employs more than 175 healthcare professionals, including 36 providers on staff, and serves more than 20,000 patients across six sites of care. Health Center locations include Trafalgar, Edinburgh, Franklin, and the south-side of Indianapolis. In addition, the mobile unit was deployed as a mass vaccination unit for COVID-19 in the late winter/early spring. The red portion of this update to be added at the end of February/early March. This year marks 25 years of serving its mission and providing high-quality care throughout the community.
