Community Health Network breaks ground on the Community Westview Health Pavilion; Pavilion will provide increased access to healthcare in Speedway and surrounding neighborhoods on the west side
Indianapolis, IN---Community Health Network will break ground on a 40,000 square foot healthcare pavilion along Main Street in downtown Speedway during a ceremony on May 9. Named Community Westview Health Pavilion, the facility, located at 1025 Main Street, will offer primary care, imaging, infusion and physical therapy services, as well as a multitude of other health services. The facility serves as a significant anchor for Speedway's redevelopment initiative designed to improve the town's look and quality of life.
"We are excited about opening a brand new facility that will ensure convenient access to medical care for residents of Speedway and the west side, said Jon Fohrer, CEO of Community Health Network's ambulatory services. This healthcare facility will showcase our networks commitment to exceptional medical care for west side residents, while positively contributing to Speedway's redevelopment efforts."
The pavilion, with 24 exam rooms, will be home to Speedway Family Physicians, Speedway Pediatrics, and a family medicine residency training program for osteopathic residents, in partnership with nearby Marian University. The facility allows for expanded opportunities in medical education. In addition to offering an array of healthcare services, Community MedCheck will provide urgent care, as well as occupational health services for local residents and employers. A community room will be dedicated to patient education and health-related events and will also be available to local businesses to accommodate meeting space. The health pavilion will have an additional 8,000 square feet of space for expanding future services.
"We are pleased to offer a state-of-the-art west side healthcare facility that will meet the needs of our patients, visitors and the community," said Jon P. Anderson, president and CEO of Community Westview Hospital. "The demand for easily accessed diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitative services, as well as primary care, will be met through the new Community Westview Health Pavilion. Also, the pavilion is especially important to Community Westview's vision of providing a facility that will offer a rich and engaging learning experience for osteopathic family medicine residents."
Although Community Health Network is leasing the space, it is investing more than $1.8 million in the site, which will create about 50 jobs on the west side.
"Bringing Community Health Network's services to Speedway will help strengthen Speedway and surrounding neighborhoods," said Vince Noblet, president of the Speedway Redevelopment Commission. "A goal of our commission is to bring high quality facilities to the area and this is one that will improve the quality of life in Speedway."
The Community Westview Health Care Pavilion is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2013.
The developer for the project is Browning Investments. The architect is Studio 3 Design.
