St. Vincent Hospital - 86th Street

Ascension St. Vincent Hospital is a large, 800-bed tertiary care hospital where residents spend the majority of their time. It is comfortably located on the north side of Indianapolis and is easily accessible from all areas of town due to its close proximity to the I-465 loop which encircles the metropolitan area. The hospital is a Level-I trauma center and a referral hospital for the majority of rural Indiana. The hospital has seven floors and is fully equipped with all imaging, interventional Cardiology, interventional Radiology, and gastroenterology procedure capabilities.

The hospital has a medical intensive care unit as well as a trauma and surgical intensive care unit, neurology intensive care unit, and cardiovascular intensive care unit. In addition to general medical units, the hospital also has a Medical Progressive unit as well as Cardiovascular Progressive unit where residents can take care of higher-acuity patients in a “step-down” unit. There is also an attached outpatient wound care center, a burn unit in the ICU, and a hyperbaric medicine department.

While on inpatient services, be that AIMS (wards) or an inpatient subspecialty rotation, residents and faculty spend non-clinical time in the Department of Internal Medicine, or “3N” due to its location on the north end of the hospital on the third floor. It is close to the clinical floors and easily accessible for residents to round and see patients while allowing for ample workspace and a collaborative and educational environment in which to learn. Academic conferences are held both in the department and in larger conference rooms within the hospital.

The hospital is home to a robust Graduate Medical Education department and residencies in Internal Medicine, Transitional Year, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, General Surgery, and OBGYN and offers fellowships in Cardiology, Geriatrics, Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine and Sports Medicine.
