Minor Care can be an option for patients who can’t be seen immediately by their physician or for those who do not require the higher level of care provided in the Emergency Department.
When you arrive at the hospital, a nurse will evaluate your condition and determine whether you need to be treated in Minor Care or the Emergency Department. Many Minor Care patients may be seen by one of our board-certified nurse practitioners.
Minor Care fees are less expensive than traditional Emergency Department charges and are based on the level of care provided, as well as the level of diagnostic testing, supplies and other services required. For more information, call (812) 933-5148 or email Sharon Kreuzman.
