St.Vincent and Witham Health Services announced a major initiative to expand healthcare access in Clinton County with the development of a new ambulatory care center at 2485 E. Wabash Street in Frankfort.

The ambulatory care center, which is expected to open near the end of 2018, will offer convenient access to immediate care, primary care, imaging, rehabilitation and laboratory services, in addition to a variety of specialty care providers.

St.Vincent and Witham Health Services joined forces to support the new facility, which is designed to improve the health of the community by providing care close to home. “To improve health outcomes, we need to provide convenient ways for individuals to access quality care close to home, when they need it,” said St.Vincent Indiana Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Nalli. “We are excited to collaborate with Witham Health Services to provide a new option for Clinton County residents in need of non-emergency care.”

This new development reinforces St.Vincent and Witham Health Services’ continued commitment to Clinton County and surrounding residents.

“This was the perfect opportunity for Witham to work with St.Vincent to better serve the residents of Frankfort and Clinton County,” said Raymond Ingham, President/CEO of Witham Health Services. “Witham continues to evaluate the healthcare needs of the community and look for opportunities to improve access and provide high quality care to those we serve. We are very excited to begin this partnership.”
