new patient transition letter


We at Southern Indiana Community Health Care are looking forward to the opportunity to be of service in Lawrence County.

You may not recognize our name yet, but you will be pleased to know that we hold a long record of high-quality primary care. 

We have been serving as an independent community health center and a trusted provider of healthcare in the Orange and Crawford County region for almost 50 years. And now we’re excited to be expanding into Lawrence County! 

At Southern Indiana Community Health Care, we provide full-scope primary care for people from birth to the elderly, with many types of medical services in between. We are grateful to the following Bedford and Mitchell providers who are becoming part of our team and current SICHC providers stepping up to support obstetrics and prenatal care in Lawrence County. We are positively working to create a smooth transition by mid-December. 

Providers and locations

The following providers will continue to see patients in Bedford at 2512 Q St  (same location). This will serve as a temporary location until Community Health Care’s new Bedford location is constructed in Lincoln Plaza (pharmacy) at 629 Lincoln Avenue. This location is expected to open in April of 2023.

And in Mitchell at the same convenient location 2759 State Road IN-37:

Our staff is working diligently to provide as smooth a transition as possible for those who desire to continue health care coverage locally. Some construction and holiday-related issues have caused a short delay in opening our new Lawrence County offices, and we are grateful for your understanding. Please continue to check back to this page for updates.
