Open Door Health Services is a not-for- profit Federally Qualified Health Center, meaning we provide comprehensive primary, urgent, and preventative healthcare services to individuals and families throughout East Central Indiana regardless of their health insurance status. ODHS offers specific services through multiple locations in Muncie, Anderson, and Marion.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of our patients by providing affordable health care services.
Our vision is to be involved in communities where individuals experience optimal health.
Open Door Health Services is committed to achieving the highest attainable level of physical, behavioral and social well-being for all of our patients and employees through the demonstration of the following core values:
Open Door Health Services has been in the Muncie community since 1974, although we have been known by several different names, including Open Door Health Clinic and Open Door/BMH Health Center.
When the clinic first opened, it was staffed by one nurse and physicians from the residency program at Ball Memorial Hospital. Over the past three decades, Open Door has grown by leaps and bounds. In the last ten years, the growth has become even more pronounced. In 2000, Open Door served 6,272 individuals. In 2010, 17,497 received care at one of eight Open Door locations throughout East Central Indiana. That is a growth of 287% in just ten years.
Unfortunately, though, we are still not providing care to every uninsured or underinsured person in East Central Indiana. In fact, there are approximately 43,690 people who are uninsured or underinsured and eligible for our services living in East Central Indiana without access to affordable health care.
Open Door Health Services is proud to be supported by:
- Health Resources and Services Administration
- Indiana State Department of Health
- United Way of Delaware County
- City of Muncie – Community Block Development Grant through HUD
