Important COVID-19 Notice:

To protect you and our team, we are taking careful steps for everyone’s safety. If we do not contact you to reschedule, please plan to arrive for your appointment at your scheduled time.

  • All patients will be screened. If the patient does not pass the screening, the patient could be asked to reschedule their appointment.
  • One adult companion may accompany the patient (e.g. driver, caregiver) and will be screened. If the companion does not pass the screening they will be asked to leave.
  • If the companion is a parent or guardian of a minor child and does not pass the screening, another adult can be screened, or the appointment will be rescheduled.

Here is what you can expect at your in-office appointment for your safety:

  • All office staff and providers will be wearing a mask.
  • All patients and visitors age 2 and older will be required to wear a mask, which we will provide.
  • We follow strict procedures for cleaning surfaces between each patient visit.
  • We have spaced out waiting areas to enable social distancing and set up new ways to limit your time spent in waiting areas.

When you are faced with a medical emergency, IU Health provides experienced and effective treatment, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

IU Health Saxony Hospital has a full-service emergency department. We specialize in treating adults and children. Our team includes physicians experienced in emergency medicine and highly trained emergency medicine nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs).

We also offer social work and chaplaincy services to help patients and families cope with emergencies.

IU Health Saxony Hospital provides treatment for patients who arrive with a variety of common illnesses to complex medical conditions. This ranges from a possible heart attack or stroke, difficulty breathing, abdominal pain, sudden illness, cuts, bleeding, broken bones and more. We offer the latest technology and an advanced team of caregivers.

Through our partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine, we are improving outcomes for our most critically ill and injured patients through research and clinical trials.

Our convenient facilities include:

  • Eight specialty rooms, four chest-pain rooms and one trauma room
  • A full-service laboratory, radiology and imaging, and respiratory care support
  • A full-service catheterization (cath) lab, including three dual-purpose cath labs. Catheterization involves insertion of a catheter, or thin tube, into the body to perform a surgical procedure or treat a disease.

The IU Health Saxony Hospital Emergency Medicine staff treats pediatric patients. If children are required to be admitted to a hospital, they will need to be referred to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health North Hospital.

IU Health LifeLine

Assuring your safe transportation to and from IU Health Saxony Hospital or other IU Health hospitals is important to us. That is why we have a helipad for IU Health LifeLine. LifeLine provides transport by ground (ambulance) and air (helicopter).

Additional transport is offered though the town of Fishers Emergency Medical Services and Seals Ambulance Service. Both organizations use an ambulance bay and staff sleeping quarters at our hospital. This allows faster emergency response service and better access to emergency care.
