Lutheran Health Network has broken ground for a new hospital in downtown Fort Wayne.
The roughly $120 million project calls for the construction of a five-story building. The 188,000-sq. ft. hospital will consist of 60 inpatient beds with room to grow to 100. The site is located at the southwest corner of Main and Van Buren.
Work started to relocate the hospital’s MRI from its current location on the construction site to a temporary location next to St. Joe. The initial phase of construction will also include the demolition of the existing MRI building and the relocation of utilities.
The new hospital is expected to be completed in late 2021 and open for patient care in early 2022.
