Fairbanks gets $1M from United Way for hospital expansion

November 30, 2012

United Way of Central Indiana said Friday it will donate $1 million to Fairbanks to help the drug and alcohol addiction treatment center expand its main building in the Castleton area.

Fairbanks runs an 86-bed hospital as well as an outpatient center. Last year, its 300-person staff served more than 19,000 patients.

The $2.5 million project will add 7,000 square feet to Fairbanks' 71,500-square-foot main building. Ground was broken in September and the project is expected to be completed in the spring.

The new space will be used for larger group meeting rooms, offices, physician consultation rooms, space for students and interns, and storage.

The not-for-profit, which has a $21 million annual budget, recently went through a leadership change. CEO Helene Cross retired in July after leading Fairbanks for 11 years.

She was replaced by Mark Monson, formerly chief operating officer of Beaver Dam Community Hospitals in Wisconsin.
