HENDRICKS COUNTY

Medical facilities expanding

Two Hendricks County hospitals are planning major expansions starting this summer. The board of Hendricks Regional Health is scheduled to vote in late April on adding more than 200,000 square feet to the hospital’s headquarters campus in Danville. The project will cost more than $60 million and will be the largest single addition since the original campus opened
in 1962. It will add a surgery suite, patient rooms and a new cafeteria.

Also, Clarian West Medical Center, an 86-bed hospital in Avon, is adding more than 55,000 square feet and 30 beds in a $14 million expansion set to begin this fall. It’s adding more than 21,000 square feet to its emergency department and finishing more than 33,700 square feet of space on its third floor to include more obstetrical, surgical and emergency room beds.

Most admissions to the hospital come through the emergency room and demand there has outpaced estimates every year, said Paul Ivkovich, Clarian West Vice President of Operations. Since the hospital opened in late 2004, emergency admissions have grown from just under 7,000 to more than 20,000. The hospital expansion comes as Clarian West wraps up a 30,000-squarefoot addition to its adjacent medical office building.
