Parkview Health, a not-for-profit, community-based health system, plans to expand the Parkview Regional Medical Center campus in Fort Wayne.
The plans calls for the construction of a 6-story, 168,000 sq. ft. medical tower that will allow for the hospital to add 72 new inpatient beds.
In a statement, Parkview said that approximately 63,000 sq. ft. of the new tower will be shell space, allowing for future expansion plans.
“The number of people who choose Parkview for their care continues to rise. We have deployed many initiatives to best meet these growing needs, including investments that have allowed for increased capacity at PRMC and Parkview Hospital Randallia. However, we find our Allen County inpatient bed capacity is insufficient to meet this growing demand,” Mike Packnett, president and CEO of Parkview Health, stated.
The organization hasn’t disclose any information related to the project’s construction timeline and budget.
