CHS to build $120M Indiana hospital

Fort Wayne, Ind.-based Lutheran Health Network, part of Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems, plans to build a $120 million, 60-bed hospital in Fort Wayne, according to the News-Sentinel.

The new facility, to be called Lutheran Downtown Hospital, will replace St. Joseph Hospital. The 180,000-square-foot hospital will be built to allow growth to more than 100 beds.

"Long before the notion of 'downtown revitalization' began to materialize nearly a decade ago, Lutheran Health Network was already turning vision into reality through the ongoing modernization of St. Joseph Hospital and its campus," LHN CEO Mike Poore told the News-Sentinel. "As we look to the future of healthcare and how it will be delivered in and around the heart of the city, this new facility will serve as a springboard to bigger and better things."

Construction on Lutheran Downtown Hospital is slated to begin in summer 2019 with completion in late 2021, according to the report.
