Leaders in Indiana are recognizing Regenstrief Institute for its 50 years of innovation to advance the health and wellbeing of people in Indianapolis, across the state of Indiana and beyond. Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett declared September as Regenstrief Institute Month, and Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb declared Sept. 21-27 as Regenstrief Institute Recognition Week.

Regenstrief Institute was founded in 1969 by Indiana industrialist and philanthropist Samuel Regenstrief and his wife Myrtie. Today, more than 60 research scientists and nearly 200 staff members support the vision of innovation, applying and implementing solutions to improve human health. Research teams work in such important areas as stroke treatment, diagnosis and treatment of depression, doctor-patient relations, health disparities, nursing home care, brain health, advance care planning, electronic medical records, health information exchange, disease surveillance, social determinants of health, opioids and artificial intelligence applications.

The mayoral proclamation states that Regenstrief is influential in making Indianapolis one of the most health-wired cities in the country through its work with health information technology. The mayor notes that Regenstrief has helped provide residents of Marion County with healthcare innovations such as one of the nation’s only intensive care recovery centers and an outreach program for underserved mothers and their babies.

The governor’s proclamation recognizes the institute’s contributions to address the COVID-19 pandemic, innovations in stroke care, improvements in nursing home care and many other accomplishments that have improved the health and wellbeing of people in Indiana.
