​​AlbertHahnDesk.jpgHahn Foundation Transitioning to IHA Hospital Assistance Foundation​

IHA is transitioning the Albert G. and Grace Hahn Foundation into the IHA Hospital Assistance Foundation this year to combine IHA's charitable foundations, but the mission of the Hahn Foundation will continue – specifically, supporting Indiana hospitals since 1961. The Ken and Cindy Stella Scholarship Fund, which annually awards $10,000 in scholarships to students in the graduate program in health administration at Indiana University, and the Indiana Hospital Employee Disaster Relief Fund, which administers assistance to hospitals that have suffered damage as a result of natural disasters, will continue through the IHA Hospital Assistance Foundation.  

NOTE: We greatly appreciate the recent donation of $10,000 to the Indiana Hospital Employee Disaster Relief Fund from Hancock Health and encourage others to consider contributions to this important program. 

IHA is proud to support the ongoing mission of both funds, which provide critical support to our workforce pipeline and assist Indiana hospitals that are impacted by natural disasters. The IHA Hospital Assistance Foundation will also be a key supporter of IHA's Safe an​d Sound initiative to combat workplace violence. 

If you are interested in learning more or supporting the IHA Hospital Assistance Foundation and these ongoing funds, please contact Laura Gilbert.  If you have any questions regarding the transition, please contact Laura Brown

OrthoIndy​ opened its newest hospital this week, with the ribbon-cutting ceremony scheduled for today at 5:30 p.m.

The new Brownsburg hospital and clinic was built from the ground-up for an elevated patient experience in clinic, surgery, rehab, PT, and imaging. 
This is a relocation of the former Brownsburg location – more convenient to patients and employees just off I-74.
