When Riverview Health CEO Seth Warren began his new role, he hit the ground running.
With blueprints scattered on the conference table, the growth with Riverview Health is palpable. The transition to new leadership comes at an important time for the expanding healthcare system.
“I’ve come on staff at a rather busy time,” says Warren, smiling and somewhat understating the situation. “There is a lot going on.”
Warren’s extensive healthcare experience has taken his family across the country where he’s developed a strong reputation for improving performance in various healthcare environments. “Riverview Health is a well-respected hospital,” says Warren, who has recently moved to the area from Chesterton. “My family and I are happy to be back in the Indianapolis area.”
From the expansion of the existing hospital to the construction of a new facility in Westfield, Riverview Health has its course set on creating a wider reach around Hamilton County and central Indiana. Among the growth plans is a new outpatient care center on the northeast corner of U.S. 31 and State Road 32 in Westfield. Services offered include urgent care, physician offices, a surgery center, occupational medicine, physical therapy, orthopedics and sports medicine, radiology, OB/GYN, rehabilitation, endoscopy, pediatrics and family practice.
“We are a private hospital and believe in maintaining an atmosphere of genuine caring and respect,” says Warren of the guiding values of Riverview Health. “It really shows throughout this organization, and I am thrilled to be in a leadership role for such an amazing organization.”
Warren and his wife, Maureen, are originally from a small town in south New Jersey but have embraced Indiana and consider themselves Hoosiers.
“Our kids have lived in Indiana more than anywhere,” shares Warren. “We alternate spending Christmases in Indiana and New Jersey. We realized our kids thought of Indiana as home when we said we were going home this year, and one of our boys said, ’We’re staying home? I thought we were going to New Jersey.’” This was the pivotal moment when the Warrens realized they were officially Hoosiers. The family has lived in Indiana for 18 years.
One aspect of Riverview Health that impresses Warren is the inner connectivity between the health system and the community. “The sense and feel of community in Noblesville is appealing,” says Warren. “I’ve witnessed many instances in this city that prove this is sincere and heartfelt.”
“I am excited to begin to work with Seth and continue to work with many of the wonderful staff we’ve grown to know at Riverview Health,” says Noblesville Main Street Executive Director Chris Owen. “I believe that we will find new opportunities to partner and provide increased value to our community. We welcome Seth and his family and are looking forward to accomplishing great things together!”
Riverview Health, like many businesses in Noblesville, is intertwined within the community. One such example is with Noblesville Schools in providing an atmosphere for students to explore career paths in the healthcare field.
“I look forward to working with Seth Warren to continue the strong partnership we have enjoyed with Riverview Health,” says Beth Niedermeyer, Superintendent of Noblesville Schools.
A large addition to the main Riverview Health campus is to begin soon, expanding outpatient facilities and adding a parking garage to the east of the building. Visit riverview.org for more information.
