Ball Memorial Hospital
Ball Memorial Hospital, a Clarian Health Partner, was founded in 1929 and serves as a regional tertiary referral center, a teaching hospital and is the largest non-government employer in East Central Indiana, employing 2,500 with a payroll exceeding $95 million. BMH is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and is ISO certified. BMH boasts a 260-member clinical staff, which represents more than 45 medical specialties, and approximately 87 percent of that group is board certified (a figure that is well above the national average).
BMH is also a regional center for open heart surgery and our cardiac program provides diagnostic as well as interventional cardiac and electrophysiology procedures. In addition, the hospital is recognized as a regional leader for many types of surgery hip and knee replacement procedures offered in conjunction with our Total Joint and Spine Center, and BMH is the only facility in the area to offer a perinatal center and level 3-B neonatal intensive care unit for the care of high-risk pregnancies and newborns.
The hospital campus is also home to the Edmund F. Ball Medical Education Center and includes the largest physician teaching program in Indiana outside of Indianapolis, with four residency programs and a total of 60 physicians in training. The hospital is also affiliated with the Indiana school of medicine, and serves as an educational site for the first two years of medical school. As part of the graduate medical education program, Ball Hospital operates family medicine and internal medicine clinics, which provide low-cost medical care to over 25,000 patients a year.
Hospital officials recently unveiled their vision for the renovation of Ball Memorial Hospital’s patient-centric south wing – a $120 million facility master plan that includes 300,000 square feet of new and revitalized space by 2010. In addition to private rooms, patients can look forward to many other enhanced features.
