INDIANAPOLIS (May 14, 2015)- Community Health Network announced Thursday its investing more than a quarter of a billion dollars in Indianapolis.
The money will fund two large building projects in the city.
The first is a $175 million hospital on the city’s eastside.
Last fall the healthcare provider announced it would renovate the existing Community Hospital East facility.
Instead, it decided to build a brand-new hospital in the same location while still providing patient care.
“We’ll move people out of some areas where they are right now. We’ll have vacant buildings, we’ll knock them down that will make way for construction. And we’ll construct it on that site while operations happen,” said Bryan Mills, President and CEO of Community Health Network.
Community Health also plans to expand cancer services on its north campus.
A $60 million, three-story facility will go up along Shadeland Avenue.
Construction on that facility starts in the fall.
Crews will start working on the new Community East Hospital in July.
