Jane Pauley Community Health Center Shelbyville moving to new location this month

The Jane Pauley Community Health Center (JPCHC) announced that effective February 24, its Shelbyville practice will begin seeing patients in a new, expanded location at 1818 E. State Road 44, Suite B.

The practice is relocating from its prior space less than half a mile away at 1640 E. State Road 44, Suite B. Having completely remodeled a former Gordmans’ Department Store, JPCHC is tripling from roughly 5,000 to 15,000 square feet to provide Primary and Behavioral Health Care services for local patients.

“This investment in our Shelby County presence has been in the works for over three years. We are pleased to increase our capacity for providing comprehensive, affordable care for all, with room for future growth as well,” said Marc Hackett, JPCHC CEO. “Our mission is ‘caring for our communities,’ so we also look forward to continued partnership with Major Hospital and other local groups to support community members needing healthcare and other resources and services.”

This year marks the JPCHC Shelbyville location’s tenth anniversary in the community. Doors initially opened in 2013 at the Shelbyville Middle School, and expanded when JPCHC acquired the free clinic at its current location in 2016. JPCHC will look to celebrate its continuation of non-profit healthcare services for the Shelbyville community with an open house at the new space later this spring.

“As a Shelbyville native myself, it’s been gratifying to oversee the continued improvements in accessible healthcare for our local residents,” said Shelbyville Practice Manager Dawn Houchin, who has been with JPCHC since joining under the free clinic merger in 2016. “We have immediate openings for Primary Care appointments, now with new language translation services available to ensure access for all. A food pantry is in the works to open onsite in 2023. And, whether you are a patient or not, we can help with free insurance enrollment appointments. We’re here no matter what support our patients need.”
