WABASH — A gloomy, windy day in Wabash County on Wednesday did not dampen the excitement surrounding a special ceremony at the future site of the Parkview Wabash Hospital.  With a few hundred people in attendance, Parkview Health leaders announced the reaching of a construction milestone with the new facility, with the final beam of the primary structure set to be put in place. 

The actual "topping out" process with the final beam was postponed due to high winds. 

The new hospital, a 80,000 square foot facility that will create approximately 14 new jobs in Wabash, will be completed in June of 2018. The campus will also include a new 31,000 square foot medical office that will house Parkview Physicians Group. 

"When it comes to adapting to the needs of Wabash County, Parkview is just the right leader to help with that," said David Haist, Chairman of the Parkview Health Board of Directors. 

Services at the new Parkview Wabash Hospital campus will include full-service emergency room facilities, diagnostic imaging, an impatient medical/surgical unit and more. Approximately 15 additional physicians from Parkview Physicians Group will call the campus home, specializing in cardiology, pulmonology, podiatry, colon and rectal surgery, gynecology and orthopedics.

The new facility, located at 1800 N. Wabash St. off US-24, will replace the current 25-bed Wabash County Hospital, which has served the community since the 1950s

"This hospital is a big part of the Parkview promise in the community," said Michael Packnett, President and CEO of Parkview Health. "We look forward to June of 2018."
