Weigh in on the new Wishard

July 17, 2009

Check out this early rendering of a proposed replacement for Wishard Hospital. The $754-million project calls for 11 stories and about 1.2 million square feet of space. It would be built just west of the current hospital, next to the Roudebush VA Medical Center, as part of a land swap with IU. Hospital officials say renovating the current facility is not practical because mechanical systems are failing and patient rooms can't accommodate modern equipment. Wishard's facility is spread over 17 buildings, many built before World War II. The new hospital would replace the former home of Larue D. Carter Memorial Hospital. The old Wishard would be used for an expansion of the IUPUI campus.
