Indiana hospital closes after services relocated to new facility

Major Hospital in Shelbyville, Ind., part of Major Health Partners, closed Saturday after its services were relocated to MHP Medical Center in Shelbyville. 

Since it opened in 1924, Major Hospital has undergone two expansions. In 2014, hospital officials realized the facility once again needed to grow due to an increase in patient volume. Instead of expanding the hospital again, Major Health Partners' board of directors voted to build a new facility.

The new hospital, MHP Medical Center, opened Saturday, the same day Major Hospital closed. MHP Medical Center includes 56 inpatient rooms, 38 outpatient rooms and a concourse design for ease of access throughout the building. MHP Medical Center is better designed for outpatient care and will be more cost-effective to operate than the old facility, according to hospital officials.
