INDIANAPOLIS – IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital and Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana (RHI) officials publicly announced a new partnership the IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital Acute Rehabilitation Center.
“By partnering with RHI, IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital we will ensure that we maximize our patients’ functional recovery and quality of life.” said Michael E. Haley, President and CEO of Ball Memorial Hospital.
The IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital Acute Rehabilitation Center is the result of further strengthening the partnership IU Health has with Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana.

Since the community collaboration between the two major healthcare systems, RHI has successfully supported both providers with rehabilitation services.
“The partnership with IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital allows RHI to help additional patients needing acute inpatient rehabilitation in central Indiana” said Dan Woloszyn, CEO of Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana.
The IU Health Ball Hospital Memorial Acute Rehabilitation Center will care for a variety of patients including neurological diagnosis, oncology, trauma, multiple fractures, post-aneurysm, dialysis, and total joint replacement. In addition, patients will receive physical, occupational and speech therapy, onsite pharmacy, radiology and rehabilitative nursing care.
