Indianapolis-based Community Health Network will cut the ribbon Thursday morning on its $7.3 million connector bridge between Community Hospital North and Community Heart and Vascular. The health system says the 1,000-foot bridge will make the transportation of patients between facilities more convenient.
The bridge includes amenities including specialty phones with dedicated Wi-Fi for emergency situations, emergent pharmacy supplies and an AED, and fogged and mirrored glass for patient privacy. Community says the walkways are wide enough for two beds or chairs to pass each other during transport.
The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
