Fishers Plan Commission hosted a public hearing June 6 on a new Riverview Health Urgent Care facility in Fishers.

A concept plan for the new medical facility, along with proposed site plans, indicate that the  building would encompass 10,700 square feet on 2.2 acres at the northwest corner of 116th Street and Exit Five Parkway, just to the east of TopGolf.

In February, Riverview announced plans to open at least four additional urgent care centers in central Indiana, including Fishers, Carmel and Indianapolis.

City planner Megan Schaefer said the proposed Fishers facility would have a sculpture garden with a mix of trees, shrubs, annuals and perennials. The front facade of the facility would face 116th Street, but a city ordinance bans planting on the frontage of the building.

President and CEO of Riverview Health Seth Warren said  patients ofent aren’t aware what health care options are available.

“What we have proposed has emergency room physicians providing care,” Warren said. “So, if you show up with an ear infection, you’re going to be billed on an urgent-care level. We want to be here so if people have a health care issue or need, they don’t have to start looking for and trying to find where it is to seek that care.”

The facility also will house an emergency vehicle pickup bay for ambulances.

Commissioners voted unanimously to send the Riverview Health planned unit development to the Fishers City Council with a favorable recommendation.

The next plan commission meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. July 11 at City Hall, 1 Municipal Dr. For more, visit fishers.in.us.
