Providers in the Community

 

We’re fortunate to work with many amazing providers who donate their time and effort to make a huge positive difference in our community. This includes helping out with critical services for children, families who are homeless, people who are uninsured and many others. These providers are going above and beyond to help make Hendricks County a brighter, healthier place to live — and we couldn’t be happier they’re part of the Hendricks Regional Health team.

Angi isn’t just a nurse practitioner at Hendricks — she’s also the volunteer medical director for the Diabetes Youth Foundation of Indiana. It’s a position that helps Angi connect diabetic kids with others who share the condition, and a way to help them get the resources they need to live healthy, active lives.

Dr. Beth Summers Trains Paramedics on Neonatal Resuscitation

Knowing how to resuscitate a newborn baby is a vital life-saving skill.

It’s a job that will no doubt help save the lives of children throughout Hendricks County for years to come.
