It is important to understand when you should go to IndyCare vs Emergency Room or other. IndyCare is not an appropriate facility if you are experiencing life-threatening illnesses or injuries. Even our most commonly treated illnesses may require transportation to the local emergency room if critically needed.
Some examples of illnesses and injuries treated at IndyCare:● Fractures● Sprains and strains● Cuts and lacerations● Burns● Urinary Tract Infections● Yeast Infections● Pink eye● Mono● Bronchitis● Colds● Flus● Ear Infections● Strep Throat● Rashes● Minor Abdominal Pain● Nausea and/or diarrhea
IndyCare is not an appropriate place to receive primary care management of chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, COPD, congestive heart failure, depression or chronic pain. If you have a chronic illness, IndyCare may refer you to a primary care provider or an appropriate specialist. Conversely, we may work with certain providers to help maintain your health and appropriate treatment plans for specific chronic conditions.
