(Greendale, Ind.) – St. Elizabeth Healthcare plans to expand its campus in Greendale with the construction of a new hospital.
An announcement was made Tuesday morning that St. Elizabeth Healthcare will build a new, $125 million hospital in Greendale near Interstate 275.
The new facility will be adjacent to St. Elizabeth Physicians offices and the St. Elizabeth Cancer Center, which is currently under construction and scheduled to open in spring of 2024.
Design work for the three-story, 120,000 square foot facility will begin this fall with an anticipated opening in 2027.
While many details are still pending, the new hospital will include inpatient care, surgery, emergency department, pharmacy, laboratory, imaging, endoscopy, interventional radiology, and cardiac catheterization.
“When it’s complete, the Greendale campus will offer our patients, providers and associates in Southeastern Indiana quality care in a convenient setting, near interstate 275,” said Garren Colvin, President and Chief Executive Officer of St. Elizabeth Healthcare.
The current location of St. Elizabeth Dearborn will remain open until the new facility is completed. At that time, St. E’s leadership team will work with community leaders to evaluate the best use for the Lawrenceburg site.
As previously announced, the St. Elizabeth Dearborn birthing center is set to close due to low demand for birthing services in southeastern Indiana. The services will be consolidated in St. Elizabeth Edgewood. An exact date for the closure and consolidation has yet to be released.
“Women’s health services will continue to be offered in Southeastern Indiana,” said Heidi Murley, MD, Executive Vice President, St. Elizabeth Healthcare and Chief Executive Officer and President, St. Elizabeth Physicians. “Only deliveries are shifting outside the area. Our St. Elizabeth Physicians office in Lawrenceburg will provide pre and post-natal care, and gynecological care as well. The new Greendale hospital campus will offer breast health screening, gynecological surgery and other outpatient women’s health care.”
