Community Health plans $12M east-side medical complex

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Community Health Network officials on Monday said they plan a $12 million medical complex near Interstate 465 and Washington Street on Indianapolis’ east side.

Construction is set to begin soon on Community Health Pavilion, a three-story, 55,000-square-foot medical building to be built on six acres at 7910 E. Washington St.

When finished in early 2012, the building will offer access to primary-care doctors from the Community Physicians of Indiana group, lab services from Mid America Clinical Labs, and specialty services including advanced imaging, rehab and sports medicine.

Existing MedCheck and Community Occupational Health Services offices at 17th Street and Post Road will move to the building.

The complex will be built on property left undeveloped since the closing and demolition of a Laughner’s Cafeteria. Greenwood-based Alderson Commercial Group Inc. will develop the project for Community Health Network.

The network operates Community Hospital branches and the Indiana Heart Hospital, all in Indianapolis, as well as Community Hospital Anderson.

  • You may be right
    Yes the new President in her first email to employees said that she didn't come here (that is Community East) to close it. Isn't that funny how this was mentioned right away? Why bring up closing down East if you don't intend to? I think that's what they want to do very badly!!!
  • Money for this but not for employees
    It is strange that this hospital can built a new $12 million facility while the east hospital lost $98 million last year and the place laid off 500 - 600 long time employees.
  • Community Hospital East
    Am I understanding this correct that the current main campus @ 17th & Ritter will close?

    1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

    2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

    3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

    4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

    5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
