To the editor:
Over the past four years, the central Indiana community has come together to make possible and embrace the new Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital and Eskenazi Health campus.
Fittingly, that spirit of collaboration and working together for the health of our community was central to the final step of our transition to Eskenazi Health.
On Dec. 7, in a highly coordinated process involving Eskenazi Health, Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services, the U.S. Navy Reserve, the Indiana National Guard, MESH (formerly known as Managed Emergency Surge for Healthcare) and hundreds of volunteers and ambulances from across central Indiana, patients receiving care at Wishard Memorial Hospital were moved to the new Eskenazi Health campus beginning at 7 a.m. and finished hours ahead of schedule just after 2 p.m. Then, on Dec. 9, the Eskenazi Health Outpatient Care Center opened for patient appointments, the final step in the process of opening our new campus.
