Hamilton Center Inc. Acquires St. Vincent’s Westside Counseling Office

Hamilton Center Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Hamilton Center Inc. Westside Counseling, to its regional behavioral health system effective immediately. This office, formerly part of the St. Vincent’s Stress Center, is located at 602 N. High School Road (near the 10th Street West exit off of 465 North), Indianapolis.

The office, originally started 20 years ago by Dennis Anderson, M.D., will retain the core clinical staff including Dr. Anderson, and add two social workers. The office will employ three psychiatrists, one clinical psychologist, one clinical therapist, six social workers and four support staff. Program manager John Sullivan, a licensed clinical social worker, will supervise the staff.

“We are very pleased to be a part of the Hamilton Center system”, said Sullivan. “Hamilton Center is a leading community mental health center in the state which has been providing quality, progressive patient care for over 30 years.”

Sullivan will report to Robert Fazekas, Psy.D., director of satellite services for Hamilton Center. “We are so pleased that the staff has stayed together during the transition,” said Fazekas. “They are top notch clinicians with extensive experience in serving Central Indiana communities.”

Currently the office serves approximately 2,000 clients including children, adolescents, adults and families. Services include the full continuum of behavioral health and addiction outpatient services, including individual and family therapy, intensive outpatient programs (IOP), partial hospitalization, and psychiatric services.

“This office will further expand Hamilton Center’s presence in Central Indiana and will increase the number of clients the organization serves by approximately 20%,” said Galen Goode, CEO of Hamilton Center.
