John Colontrelle - Life-Saving Heart Surgery
John Colontrelle felt a "pop" in his chest during his regular workout one morning. He thought that he had pulled a muscle. He hadn't. What John experienced was an aortic dissection, a very serious and rare condition, especially for a healthy, active 31-year-old. Fortunately, John came to Indian River Medical Center "just to have it checked out-to be safe." That visit saved his life. John's story>
IRMC Now Completely Tobacco Free
On Nov. 21, 2013, Indian River Medical Center became completely tobacco-free, both indoors and outdoors for all properties. This includes the parking areas and the vehicles parked there. This ban covers all tobacco products, including chewing tobacco and e-cigarettes, and extends to everyone who smokes: patients, visitors, employees, students and vendors. The accompanying links show the medical center's Tobacco-free Campus policy and communication to patients, physicians and employees on the issue.
At Indian River Medical Center, our mission—first, foremost and always—is to improve the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve. To do that effectively, we must continually be forward-looking about how we deliver the best possible care.

IRMC Rolls Out the Welcome Mat for Surgical Patients
- Dedicated parking.
- Entrance just steps away from parking.
- Dedicated registration center to reduce registration/wait times.
- Directional signs leading patients to the dedicated parking area for the day of surgery and new Outpatient Surgery entrance. Parking will be allocated using ‘hang-tag' permits for the day of the patient's surgery.
We believe these changes improve access to the great outpatient surgery provided by our physicians and staff. We will continue to monitor our environment to identify opportunities to improve services to IRMC physicians and their patients.
