Plastic Surgery at Indiana University (IU) Health North and West Hospitals

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

It isn’t very often that a large corporation takes on a complete name change. This is particularly rare in the medical world with a hospital system. But that is exactly what is happening this month in the Clarian Health System. Since 1997, Clarian Health has existed as a core set of downtown Indianapolis hospitals, Methodist, University, and Riley Hospital for Children. Since its inception it has also acquired over a dozen hospitals around the state, creating the largest statewide hospital system and the only one closely aligned with the Indiana University School of Medicine.

Despite having multiple locations across the state, however, the Clarian name doesn’t resonate with much familiarity outside of Indianapolis. After undertaking a large market research study, Clarian is launching an historic name change to more clearly define its mission and statewide focus.  Clarian will change its name to Indiana University Health effective this month. Indiana University Health will better identify Clarian’s unique brand of nationally recognized health care, reinforce its partnership with Indiana University and the IU School of Medicine, which provides patients with access to innovative research and treatments, and better reflect the breadth of its mission. Each and every hospital in the system will change their names as well with Indiana University (IU) Health preceding the hospital location in most cases.

As I have two plastic surgery practices in suburban Clarian locations, this name will affect the two hospitals where these facilities exist. My northside Indianapolis location at Clarian North Medical Center in Carmel will change its name to Indiana University (IU) Health North Hospital. My westside Indianapolis location at Clarian West Medical Center in Avon will change its name to Indiana University (IU) Health West Hospital.


While a hospital name change can initially be confusing for patients, the practice phone numbers (IU Health North 317.706.4444, IIU Health West 317.217.2200), the website (www.eppleyplasticsurgery.com) and the email address, info@eppleyplasticsurgery.com will remain the same. It will take some time before GPS locaters will be able to identify the hospital locations by these new names however.

As the Clarian name fades away and the Indiana University Health name emerges, we at Eppley Plastic Surgery look forward to providing plastic surgery procedures, innovations and service that is commensurate with this new bold vision.

Ology Spas – A Hospital-Based Concept

Friday, November 2nd, 2007

A Hospital-Based Spa – Integrating East and West

The past 10 years has seen a paradigm shift in plastic surgery with a large number of non-surgical office-based procedures for producing cosmetic changes. Botox, injectable fillers, LipoDissolve injections, light therapies, etc. have resulted in more office visits than any number of surgeries that could be performed. No longer is the plastic surgeon just a once-in-a-lifetime visit for simply having surgery. A visit to the plastic surgeon’s office today is done much more frequently…and usually not for surgery. This phenomenon, combined with an overall wellness or holistic approach to medicine, has created a unique opportunity to integrate or synergize all of these therapies and treatments in a single practice setting.

I created this change in 2004 to my practice by establishing the Ology Spa concept here in Indianapolis. It is a hospital-based spa practice concept that provides comprehensive plastic surgery and medical skin care (western medicine) with massage therapy, acupuncture, and other ayurvedic therapies (eastern medicine). Besides combining these therapies, the facilities were placed in newly-built suburban hospitals in the Indiana University Health System. The spa facilities were created, built, and treatment protocols established by my expert Director and co-owner, Andrea Bradley-Stutz, whose vision and tireless devotion to the concept are largely responsible for the wonderful facilities and services that we have today. With two locations at IU Health Hospitals in Avon Indiana and in Carmel Indiana, we provide care and services to not only those communities but to a large radius extending both into the city and out to Indiana’s western and northern borders.

It has been a wonderful addition/integration to my plastic surgery practice. My patients can enjoy the tremendous skills of our medical aestheticians and massage therapists both before or after surgery, simply come in to relax and enjoy the soothing ayurvedic therapies, receive an organic manicure or pedicure, or receive acupuncture treatments for the treatment of chronic pain, to lose weight, or stop smoking. This is truly one stop shopping for all of your wellness and beauty needs!
