St. Vincent Hospital is a hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. It is the flagship installation of St. Vincent Health which operates 22 facilities over 46 Indiana counties and is one of the largest ministries in the Catholic health care organization Ascension Health.


Driven by the faith of four Daughters of Charity who arrived in Indianapolis in 1881 with $34.77 in their pockets[citation needed], St. Vincent has grown to include six "Centers of Excellence": Women's, Children's, Orthopedics, Cardiovascular, Neuroscience and Cancer Care.
