Riverview Health, along with city officials and community representatives, held a groundbreaking today for its new 105,000 square-foot outpatient care center at the northeast corner of US 31 and State Road 32.
“The groundbreaking today represents more than just a new building for Riverview Health,” said Pat Fox, President and CEO of Riverview Health. “The outpatient care center will enable us to be progressive and meet the demands of the ever-changing healthcare industry that’s moving toward outpatient care and prevention—all to better serve our community. We’re thankful for Riverview Health leadership, community partners and city officials who’ve worked together to make this all possible.”
The outpatient services that will be available at the outpatient care center in Westfield include urgent care, primary and specialty physician services, laboratory services and imaging, an ambulatory surgical center, physical therapy and rehab services, occupational therapy and an outpatient pharmacy.
The materials and form of the building will be a reflection of the Riverview Health brand, with primary elements pulled from the Noblesville campus. The interior design will focus on the wellbeing of patients and their loved ones while integrating key features for staff. Many of the spaces are designed to invoke a relaxing, hospitality ambiance to ensure the best patient experience. In addition, the site promotes walking and bicycling to connect with the broader community, while also providing ample greenspace with native vegetation. The building design also allows for flexibility so the facility can adapt to population growth.
