0

Heart and Soul Clinic has seen a lot of changes in its 10 years of operation. One of the most recent is moving from Penn Street to a larger facility at 17338 Westfield Park Rd., Suite 1. A ribbon cutting and open house is scheduled April 25 from 4:30 to 6 p.m.

The Heart and Soul Clinic provides physical, emotional and spiritual care for the uninsured or underinsured in Hamilton County and surrounding areas.

“I think it’s more of a reintroduction. We have a new face,” Executive Director Danny Carroll said.

The event will have opportunities for attendees to donate to the clinic’s mission and showcase its mobile unit. Westfield High School culinary arts teacher Nikki Heflin’s students will prepare appetizers. Desserts also will be available.

“I don’t think anyone thought when the clinic was launched in a little house across the street from City Hall that it would serve more than a few people every month. We are growing by leaps and bounds,” Carroll said.

Each year, the clinic has doubled in patients served. This year, the clinic expects to serve more than 2,000 patients.

In addition, the clinic expects to expand its mobile offerings to Sheridan and Arcadia when warm weather returns. The clinic also is expanding the possibility of serving northern Indianapolis areas such as Nora.

At the April 25 event, attendees also will learn more about volunteer opportunities with the clinic. Carroll said it needs volunteers for several positions and is looking for nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors, dentists, physician’s assistants, dental hygienists and other health care providers.

A gala recognizing the clinic’s 10th anniversary is scheduled for November.
