Starting in 2007, Franciscan Health began the $300 million expansion and consolidation project. Franciscan Health’s new campus on the south side of Indianapolis replaced the existing hospital in Beach Grove, Indiana. Phase one was completed in 2010 with a new emergency department, wound care, and surgical suites. As the consolidation continued, a new 432,000 square foot, six story bed tower addition was built which includes 220 patient beds, 10 new operating rooms, 30 ICU units, kitchen and new cafeteria, and laundry support areas.
In 2012, the new Cancer Center opened. The Cancer Center was expanded from 20,000 to 90,000 square feet and includes outpatient bone marrow transplant clinic, 25-bay infusion center, medical offices, expanded radiation oncology department, advanced PET/CT imaging technology, cancer research department, and several areas for patient support services.
