Indiana University Health (Indianapolis) has expanded the scope of its new acute care hospital and expanded medical campus, which is under construction in downtown Indianapolis.
To meet forecasted inpatient demand, the hospital has been upsized to 864 private patient beds from a previously planned 672 beds.
The construction cost of the new hospital is now budgeted for $2.31 billion and the hospital opening has been moved to the fourth quarter of 2027.
The cost of support buildings such as medical offices and parking garages, infrastructure, and other expenditures on the expanded 44-acre campus and neighboring properties is projected to cost an additional $1.98 billion.
The project will be designed to achieve U.S. Green Building Council LEED Silver certification and U.S. EPA Energy Star rated for energy efficiency and a healthy indoor climate.
