HEALTH & WELLNESS
Our Mission Statement
Northbound Health provides transformative services to those impacted by life-altering medical conditions and injuries.
IMPROVING PATIENT LIVES
Northbound Health is a 501(c)3 created to address the health disparities and barriers for the growing number of friends, family and local community members impacted by life-altering conditions and injuries. The statistics are staggering as the easier path after a significant disability can include any number of the following: a sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits, divorce, drug addiction, alcohol dependence and suicide. Covid-19 has only magnified these problems.
Let’s reimagine healthcare by directly meeting the individual and their family where they need us most. Our services will prevent rehospitalizations, improve health and safety outcomes, and promote patient and family autonomy. Therapy is one part of the solution to improve quality of life and independence. We will work together with other community partners, expand services and increase our outreach.
Northbound has set the standard that is going to be nearly impossible to surpass
“Northbound Health is open to hearing their clients true needs. They don’t just walk in to your home, give you a piece of paper with exercises on it, take a few measurements, spend a quick 26 minutes with you and leave you to move on to the next number on their schedule.
Northbound Health Therapists walk into your whole life and support you, your goals and your efforts 100%. They work with you by first listening to you and then together they help you to realize the goals you are striving to achieve.
When they aren’t working with you personally, they’re actually sitting down with each other, making plans and coming up with innovative strategies to make sure that the patient receives the very best care possible. The time, energy, and focus that is spent on making sure the whole person is addressed is absolutely unheard of in the rehabilitation industry. I have worked with a few other companies and Northbound has set the standard that is going to be nearly impossible to surpass.”

DREAM OF SERVING
Northbound Health was founded by Nora Foster and Megan Dearing, Physical Therapists, in 2021. As clinicians working across the healthcare continuum over the last 15 years, they have seen the effects in all areas of a person’s life when they have a new or chronic disability.
There are great options for care in Central Indiana and many organizations are doing the best they can with the resources they have. However, there are some individuals that get lost in the journey or they are looking for something different, and this is the group we want to focus on.
Nora, Megan, and their team have a strong passion for the service they provide, and over the years their professional relationships have developed into personal connections. The creation of Northbound Health came from a vision and input provided by colleagues and former patients. Everyone has a unique journey to share, and we were excited to come up with a solution for some of the following problems:
- Health disparities and inequities
- Mental health issues due to disability
- COVID-19 limiting access
- Lack of insurance coverage
- Minimal resources for specialized care
