St. Vincent plans 200 jobs for Fishers expansion

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

St. Vincent Health announced Thursday morning that it plans to create 200 jobs in Fishers by converting its Medical Center Northeast outpatient facility into a 40-bed inpatient hospital.

The 110,000-square-foot expansion of the center, at 13914 Southeastern Parkway near Olio Road, will include 30 medical/surgical beds and 10 medical observation beds, as well as 10 labor-delivery-recovery-postpartum rooms.

Development plans also include spa-like amenities, indoor and outdoor dining and 24-hour room service. In addition, a fitness center will be incorporated for hospital employees.

Construction is set to begin in September and should be completed by December 2012.

“The expansion of the medical center to include inpatient services will ensure our focus on women’s health and family health as the market continues to grow,” said Kevin Speer, St. Vincent’s system vice president and chief strategy officer.

St. Vincent opened Medical Center Northeast in 2008. It includes a free-standing emergency department, ambulatory surgery center, all-digital imaging center and a medical office building.

Hospital officials have applied for LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, certification for the facility.

The St. Louis-based Catholic hospital system operates 19 hospitals in Indiana and three more near Milwaukee.

  1. The deductible is entirely paid by the POWER account. No one ever has to contribute more than $25/month into the POWER account and it is often less. The only cost not paid out of the POWER account is the ER copay ($8-25) for non-emergent use of the ER. And under HIP 2.0, if a member calls the toll-free, 24 hour nurse line, and the nurse tells them to go to the ER, the copay is waived. It's also waived if the member is admitted to the hospital. Honestly, although it is certainly not "free" - I think Indiana has created a decent plan for the currently uninsured. Also consider that if a member obtains preventive care, she can lower her monthly contribution for the next year. Non-profits may pay up to 75% of the contribution on behalf of the member, and the member's employer may pay up to 50% of the contribution.

  2. I wonder if the governor could multi-task and talk to CMS about helping Indiana get our state based exchange going so Hoosiers don't lose subsidy if the court decision holds. One option I've seen is for states to contract with healthcare.gov. Or maybe Indiana isn't really interested in healthcare insurance coverage for Hoosiers.

  3. So, how much did either of YOU contribute? HGH Thank you Mr. Ozdemir for your investments in this city and your contribution to the arts.

  4. So heres brilliant planning for you...build a $30 M sports complex with tax dollars, yet send all the hotel tax revenue to Carmel and Fishers. Westfield will unlikely never see a payback but the hotel "centers" of Carmel and Fishers will get rich. Lousy strategy Andy Cook!

  5. AlanB, this is how it works...A corporate welfare queen makes a tiny contribution to the arts and gets tons of positive media from outlets like the IBJ. In turn, they are more easily to get their 10s of millions of dollars of corporate welfare (ironically from the same people who are against welfare for humans).
