Indiana Regional Medical Center is kicking off its centennial year with a new expansion project that will add space and renovate existing space at the hospital.
The new project will add another 40,000 square feet of new construction and renovate 45,000 square feet of existing structure to bring new operating room suites, a new intensive care unit, a post-anesthesia unit, a 15-bed post-acute care unit, an endoscopy unit, and a Linear accelerator to the facility. Indiana Regional Medical Center CEO Steve Wolfe says these additions, and the upgrades to the building and patient services will keep IRMC on the cutting edge of medicine.
IRMC will be funding this with a lot of different financial resources, as described by Joe Reschini, chairman of the Centennial Capital Capmpaign. They will be trying to raise $5 million through the capital campaign, and already $2 million has been raised. IRMC will also utilize current cash assets and long-term financing.
The project will be getting underway in December, with a projected completion date of late 2016. For more details on the project itself, tune in to IRMC Today Saturday at 7:30 and 12:30 on News-Talk AM 1160 WCCS.
