Why Johnson Memorial Health?
Johnson Memorial Health is a nationally-recognized network of physicians, services and healthcare resources based in Johnson County, Indiana. The centerpiece is Johnson Memorial Hospital, located in Franklin Indiana, which has been serving patients as the county’s only hospital since 1947.
Johnson Memorial Hospital provides award-winning services including cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, maternity, orthopedic, sports medicine, pain, weight loss and wound healing care. The network also features acute rehabilitation, breast care, home and occupational care and outpatient rehabilitation services.
In addition to the main campus in Franklin, Johnson Memorial Health has expanded to include the Greenwood Primary Care Center, the Whiteland Primary Care Center and the Franklin Primary Care Center. In 2013, Johnson Memorial Health partnered with Community Health Network and opened the Stones Crossing Health Pavilion to serve the residents of the Center Grove area.
Johnson Memorial Health is on target to build a new, state-of-the-art emergency/outpatient services facility on the Johnson Memorial Hospital campus in Franklin. The $42 million dollar project, the largest in Johnson Memorial Health’s history, will completely re-shape the east side of the campus with the new emergency/outpatient facility, replacing the original 1947 hospital building. The new emergency/outpatient services facility is expected to be complete by 2020. Part of the expansion on the hospital campus includes a new Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Center that opened in fall 2017. This new center provides suites for orthopedic and sports medicine specialists, pain relief specialists and physical, occupational and speech therapies. The gym is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for adults and pediatric patients. Johnson Memorial Health has been awarded numerous accolades, including the 2015 and 2018 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Patient Experience, the Leapfrog Hospital Safety A Grade for our commitment to keeping patients safe and meeting the highest safety standards in the U.S., and has been accredited with Stroke Ready Certification by HFAP.
