> Two miles east of me on the same street is one hospital, 3.5 in the other, on the same street is another(with a bit of a zig-zag to get under the interstate) and about 3.5 SW of me is the I.U. Medical Center with several hospitals, including one brand spanking new one, just opened.  Methodist, the one straight west from me, is where they send banged up drivers when there's a crash at the Indianapolis 500. I think they've a trauma team on hand at all times. Their helipad is on the roof.  It's connected to the med center with an elevated rail line to shuttle people back & forth for whatever reason, meetings tests, whatever

There used to be 2 more close hospitals to the NW of my house. One relocated to a shiny new building several decades ago, the other just closed down a few years ago
