Eskenazi Health is a municipal hospital. During the mid-1990's, Eskanazi was selected for three consecutive years as one of the Top 100 Performing Hospitals in the nation and was the only hospital in Indiana to receive this designation three years in a row.  It houses the Midtown Community Health Center, Indiana's first community mental health center founded in 1969. Midtown provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services for all types of emotional and behavioral problems and is one of the largest mental health centers in the nation.

Eskenazi is building a new 1.2 million square foot facility, which will house 315 inpatient beds, 18 operating rooms, 12 labor and delivery rooms and a 90 bed treatment room emergency department. Eskanazi will also construct an ambulatory clinic building, an administrative office building and a central utility plant on the site. The new facility is scheduled to be completed in late 2013.
