Riverview Expanding Westfield Facility Into Hospital

Posted: Updated:
WESTFIELD -

Noblesville-based Riverview Health has unveiled plans to expand services, turning its new facility in Westfield into a hospital. The more than 100,000 square-foot hospital, which is scheduled to open near the end of the year, was previously slated to only feature outpatient services.

The Riverview Board of Trustees approved the move Tuesday for the hospital, which will be located at State Road 32 and U.S. 31 in Westfield. Ground was broken in March on the hospital, which will now include inpatient beds, three surgery suites and an emergency room. 

"Meeting the needs of the community and providing access to high-quality, reliable healthcare without sacrificing convenience has always been a top priority throughout our decision-making process," said Seth Warren, chief executive officer of Riverview Health. "Inpatient beds, a full range of imaging services and expanded emergency services will allow us to treat a broader range of medical cases and provide services for those who require additional care beyond an outpatient setting."

The new hospital will also include a number of additional services, such as laboratory, an outpatient pharmacy, physical and occupational therapy, family medicine, internal medicine and obstetrics and gynecology.

The facility was initially estimated to cost $36 million, however the health system did not have an updated investment total. It is also unknown how many jobs will be created as a result.
