INDIANAPOLIS -

After a year-and-a-half of construction, the Indiana Pacers and St. Vincent Heath have cut the ribbon on the team's new $50 million training facility in downtown Indianapolis. During today's ceremony, the team announced St. Vincent is now the exclusive health care provider of the Pacers. St. Vincent Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Nalli says the five-story facility will serve as a "dynamic health care access point" for the Pacers and the public in the heart of downtown.

In an interview with Inside INdiana Business Reporter Mary-Rachel Redman, Nalli says the new partnership expands on a "phenomenal relationship" between the network and the Pacers.

The facility features two NBA regulation courts, a training room, weight room and offices for Pacers basketball staff. It also includes two floors where St. Vincent will provide primary and cardiovascular care as well as sports performance services for the public.

The two practice floors are named after Pacers' Hall of Fame coach and broadcaster Bobby "Slick" Leonard and former general manager and Pacers CEO Donnie Walsh. The building's roof features a fully-functional garden with vegetables, wildflowers and plants native to Indiana. Vegetables from the garden will be served in the facility and donated to Second Helpings.

The project reflects a growing trend in the NBA. The Pacers say the St. Vincent Center is the 20th stand-alone training facility built by an NBA team since 1999. The WNBA's Indiana Fever will continue to use the TCU Practice Court in Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Pacers Sports & Entertainment says there is also "significant demand" for that space for other events.
