When to use Convenient Care
The Convenient Care Center is designed to diagnose and treat minor injuries and illnesses that need medical attention. Patients experiencing more critical symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, severe pain, unconsciousness, or patients suffering from a serious injury, should visit the Emergency Room or call 9-1-1.
Why it's important to still see your regular physician
While Convenient Care is ideal for services when your doctor's office is closed or very busy, it's best to see your physician directly for non-emergency health concerns. He or she is familiar with your overall health and maintains a personal relationship with you.

- Sore throat (strep testing available)
- Coughs and congestion
- Minor injuries (abrasions/scrapes)
- Rashes (poison ivy, etc.)

- Basic laboratory testing - pregnancy, glucose (blood sugar), and urinalysis
If you have questions, you may contact the Convenient Care Center at 812-273-5372 during regular business hours. Our goal is to provide you will excellent and efficient care on short notice or when your doctor's office is closed.
What is Convenient Care?

Because Convenient Care does not require the same level of staff and equipment as the ER, efficient care can be delivered for less.
What type of medical provider will I see?
The KDH Convenient Care Center utilizes both qualified physicians and qualified nurse practitioners. Regardless of the date or hour, patients will see a certified medical professional.
