IU Health to expand operations in Fort Wayne
Indiana University Health will expand its footprint in Fort Wayne with the construction of a 25,000 square foot medical office building in northeast Fort Wayne at the intersection of Stellhorn and Lahmeyer Road. This facility will include primary care, an outpatient imaging center, laboratory services, urgent care and community rooms to support the needs of Fort Wayne residents.
IU Health representatives signed the building contract in April and will begin construction on the medical office building in May.
“IU Health is committed to giving residents of Fort Wayne new options for high-quality care,” Brian Bauer, president of IU Health Fort Wayne, said in a statement. “This new facility will serve as an important step in creating access in one location to the convenient and personalized care we provide our patients.”
Bauer said IU Health Fort Wayne will also add a Primary Care office on the north side of Fort Wayne. The approximately 10,000 square feet of space, located at 10215 Auburn Park Drive off Dupont Road, is expected to open in July. Additionally, the existing primary care office on Engle Road is now offering behavioral health services via telehealth.
IU Health said in a statement it is establishing a long-term presence in the Fort Wayne market. The first IU Health Fort Wayne Primary care medical office opened in August 2018 at 7230 Engle Road.
