From intern to project manager: Adam Hormann is invested in the Fishers community

Written by Emma Avila,, writer for IU Health’s Indianapolis Suburban Region.

Fishers resident Adam Hormann has been involved in the community through his work at IU Health Saxony, where he started as an intern.

Adam Hormann moved to Fishers a few weeks ago, but he has invested his time and energy into the community much longer than that, through his work at IU Health Saxony.

Hormann began at the hospital as an intern in February 2022 while he was in graduate school. He worked directly under Chief Operating Officer Chad Dilley, focused primarily on the Fishers Community Impact Project. This $300 million investment into the Fishers community includes a significant expansion of the IU Health Saxony Hospital campus and services, and the addition of offsite, outpatient access to primary care and specialists.

During his internship, Hormann took minutes during project meetings and documented the processes, especially during the design phase.

“It’s a lot of small things, but they roll up into the big portfolio project,” he said.

He graduated this year with a master’s in health administration. In July, he accepted a full-time job at IU Health Saxony as a project manager.

“I fell in love with the team,” he said. “It was easy to say yes.”

Now, he focuses on making sure project milestones are achieved as well as staffing, specifically physician recruitment. The expansion is expected to double the hospital’s workforce.

“We are making sure we have the staff to fill the needs of our patients,” he explained.

And Hormann has a direct track on what those needs are as a new Fishers resident. As he meets more people in the community, he often hears that people are excited to have these services so close to home.

“When I hear people are glad these services are offered in Fishers, it makes me feel like I’m part of something special,” he said.

Hormann is even going the extra mile to get more involved in his new home, speaking with and mentoring students at Fishers High School about his career path.

“I tell them about my internship, job and the opportunities we have at IU Health Saxony,” he said. “I can’t speak highly enough about the leadership team here and the hospital as a whole.”

Though when he took his internship, Hormann never expected to stay long-term, he is thankful for the choices he’s made.

“It’s been great to see this project from the early phases to what it is now. I couldn’t be happier here.”
