IU Health Ball Memorial Physicians Family Medicine Residency Center


At the Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital Family Medicine Residency Center, we offer a team of medical professionals to ensure you and your family receive the best care possible. Our highly skilled physicians and team members provide you and your family comprehensive care for all phases of life. We promote healthy lifestyles, preventative medicine and provide quality personalized care to each family member.


The Family Medicine Residency Center at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital has partnered with CenteringPregnancy to provide a better way to get prenatal care through interactive learning, support from other expectant mothers and more time with your physician.

CenteringPregnancy provides group prenatal care for a small group of women due around the same time. Expectant moms will be scheduled for 10 group prenatal visits of 90 minutes each in addition to the initial prenatal exam and visit with their primary care physician. The CenteringPregnancy visits are a fun and interactive visit that empowers women to be more involved with their own health during their pregnancy. The group prenatal visits involve women completing health assessments, meeting with a physician for a personal interview apart from the group, an interactive discussion, and lots of time for developing great relationships with other expectant mothers that often endure well past the pregnancy.

We provide healthy snacks and child care at each session as we understand the demands of being a busy mom and the need for great prenatal care. The interactive discussions will cover everything from nutrition and exercise in pregnancy, common discomforts of pregnancy, stress management, preparing siblings for the new baby, labor and delivery, breastfeeding and infant care.  

Members of the group often form lasting friendships and benefit one another through their common experience. We hope to have you join one of our CenteringPregnancy groups.  Contact us today at 765.747.3141 to schedule a new OB intake appointment.


Your care will be overseen by one of the associate directors for the Family Medicine Residency listed below. Our highly skilled physicians also work with residents, who are physicians completing training for three years at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital specifically in the area of Family Medicine. They are studying the latest treatments guided by research and will only add to the high level of care you’ll receive as one of our patients.
