Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE -

Indiana University Health has announced plans to open a primary care medical office in Fort Wayne. Financial details of the project were not disclosed, however the health system says the new office will open in the first quarter of 2018.

The office will be staffed with up to 15 physicians and advanced practitioners and IU Health says it will have the potential to add more in the future. The physicians will be a part of a new IU Health physician group led by Fort Wayne surgeon Geoffrey Randolph.

IU Health says the expansion into the Fort Wayne market will respond to the community's need for primary care and to attract and retain quality physicians.

"We believe IU Health can have a positive impact on the health of the Fort Wayne community with an expanded presence that includes an initial primary care office and access to leading specialists within the IU Health academic medical system," said IU Health Chief Executive Officer Dennis Murphy. "We look forward to working with the community to bring IU Health’s resources to bear in serving the vital healthcare needs of the Fort Wayne area."

The health system says it anticipates a long-term presence in Fort Wayne with the possibility of more outpatient locations being added in the coming years.

"We’re looking forward to IU Health having a presence in Fort Wayne. Fortunately, for northeast Indiana, IU Health has recognized and understands the need to ensure our citizens continue to have access to the goods and services they require and the amenities they deserve," said Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry. "I continue to be encouraged by the economic growth, new jobs and investments we’re experiencing in our community."

The announcement comes more than a month after Riley Children's Hospital at IU Health announced plans to expand its footprint in Fort Wayne with a new pediatric specialty care office.
