The new $175 million Community Hospital East Campus Master Plan represents Community Health Network's commitment to serving the Indianapolis community and delivering innovative care in today's ever-changing healthcare environment. What originally began as a campus expansion and renovation of the emergency department has evolved into a four-year campus redevelopment that will consolidate 688,000 square feet into a more efficient 518,000 square feet.
The project began with make ready departmental and utility relocations followed by demolition of 230,000 square feet between two existing buildings on the hospital's campus. In the footprint of the demolished buildings Pepper will build a five-story bed tower. The new 155-bed will total approximately 272,000 square feet and includes a new procedural platform and emergency department. The last year of the project will consist of backfill work, including more departmental and utility relocations and demolition of an additional 232,000 square feet of two more existing structures, followed by construction of a new main entrance, lobby and circle drive. Work is expected to be complete the first quarter of 2020.
