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.

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.
