Indiana University Health broke ground Friday on its expansion of IU Health Saxony Hospital – soon to be IU Health Fishers.
The $300 million investment will include a significant expansion of the IU Health Saxony Hospital campus and services.
The planned expansion will add stand-alone outpatient physician office developments in the community and grow the square footage of the hospital campus by nearly 50 percent.
As part of the investment, Riley Children’s Health will begin work on a dedicated, pediatric emergency department, which will be staffed 24/7 by Riley Children’s emergency medicine physicians and nurses. It will include eight pediatric emergency rooms with a four-bed observation unit, as well as a separate pediatric entrance, waiting room and triage area.
The hospital expansion is expected to be complete in 2025 and will double the hospital’s workforce
