FORT WAYNE -

Officials from Parkview Health in Fort Wayne will break ground Thursday on the $80 million Parkview Cancer Institute. The 125,000 square-foot facility is slated to open by the end of 2017 and will treat patients and provide care and amenities for their families.

During an interview with Inside INdiana Business in May, Chief Executive Officer Michael Packnett said a 50 percent increase in demand for cancer services over the next six or seven years is expected by Parkview officials. Packnett says that involves physical, emotional and spiritual aspects that will be cared for under one roof.

Parkview has been busy with several investments in northeast Indiana, including the $20 million Parkview Warsaw Hospital project. The first phase is expected to open early next year and create more than 100 jobs. The system is also also a year into a four-to-five-year, $55 million overhaul of its Randallia campus.

Parkview says the institute will be located on the southeastern portion of the Regional Medical Center campus, which will improve access and patient flow.
