Riverview Health is comprised of a full-service, 156-bed hospital in Noblesville, a 16-bed hospital in Westfield, as well as three freestanding combined ER and urgent care facilities. Also included are more than 25 primary, immediate and specialty-care facilities in Hamilton County.
Within the Riverview Health system, more than 350 physicians—many who are board-certified or fellowship-trained—provide healthcare services in 35 medical specialties. Their expertise, coupled with exceptional specialists and nursing staff, is one of the many reasons they’re frequently recognized for clinical and service excellence.
Riverview Health aims to provide compassionate, patient-centered care to everyone in the community. The system continually promotes a progressive, nurturing environment—and supports the community through educational seminars, screenings and other events aimed at helping families stay well.
As one of the largest employers in Hamilton County, Riverview Health plays an important role in the local business community as well. Although a non-profit organization that’s owned by Hamilton County, no tax dollars are used for operating expenses. A seven-member Board of Trustees—appointed by the Hamilton County commissioners—oversees hospital policy and strategic direction.

Why our physicians chose to practice at Riverview Health
“Riverview Health focuses on our local communities, which meshes well with my focus on preventing illness and promoting health. Riverview Health is big enough to have the resources our community needs, but it’s small enough that I can personally know the specialists my patients may need.” — Eric Marcotte, MD, Sheridan Family Medicine and Chief Medical Officer
“I truly believe the doctor-patient relationship is very much a team effort. I chose to practice at Riverview Health because they allow me to work together with my patients to deliver high-quality care in a friendly and compassionate manner.” — Stephen Jacobsen, MD, Riverview Health Physicians Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Carmel
“In medicine’s changing environment, I am thankful for my partnership with Riverview Health that allows me to continue practicing medicine in a manner that values the individual, reflects the best that surgery and medicine have to offer, and allows my team and me to provide excellent care.” — Norman Mindrebo, MD, Riverview Health Physicians Orthopedics and Sports Medicine in Carmel
I often think about what if something happens to one of us or our friends. You want to go to the closest facility, and you want that facility to be the best it can be. And that’s exactly why we choose Riverview Health.
We have seen Riverview Health go from being a small hospital that served a rural community to one that is a cutting-edge hospital with very up-to-date technology that Riverview Health Foundation raised the money to help buy. If I were having a heart attack, I’d want to be treated at Riverview Health.
There’s so much uncertainty and fear before having surgery, but I was put at ease by the nursing staff who took care of me. I know they’re busy, but they took the time to sit down, reassure me and educate us on what was going to happen. It’s scary, but they were there for me.
For me, I like the personal touch of a small hospital and walking in and knowing people. Being in a hospital is intimidating enough. At Riverview Health, you don’t feel like you’re in a big hospital where no one knows you. Because of that, we’re happy to support it.
