Community Health Network and Johnson Memorial Hospital plan to spend $14 million to build a medical office building and outpatient center in Bargersville, the hospital systems announced Wednesday.
The 70,000-square-foot facility is scheduled to be completed in mid-2013. It will include offices for primary care and specialist physicians, rehabilitation, imaging and lab testing, as well as a community meeting room.
The facility, called Stones Crossing Health Pavilion, will be located on six acres at 3000 State Road 135, about 10 miles southwest of Greenwood. The developer is Greenwood-based Alderson Commercial Group Inc.
The project is the first since Indianapolis-based Community and Franklin-based Johnson Memorial announced a clinical partnership in early 2011.
“From the time that we announced our collaboration with Community Health Network, our focus has been on creating new access points for residents of Johnson County,” Johnson Memorial CEO Larry Heydon said in a prepared statement. “This will be a dramatic step in that direction, and certainly won’t be the last.”
Community has been jockeying with Franciscan St. Francis Health for dominance of the southern suburbs of Indianapolis. Franciscan planned to build an emergency room and medical office building in Greenwood by September, but is now reconsidering those plans.
