Morgan County’s only full-service hospital has completed a new $17 million medical office building. Franciscan Health Mooresville says the 50,000-square-foot building will house its Women’s Center and other specialty care.
The building officially opens to the public on Monday.
“This represents another large step in our Franciscan Health Mooresville physicians’ and staffs’ ability to meet the healthcare needs for people throughout Morgan County and nearby communities,” said Dr. James Callaghan, chief executive officer for Franciscan Health Central Indiana.
The health system says the building’s first floor houses a central registration area, Franciscan Physician Network Kendrick Family Medicine offices and Axia Women’s Health, and a nurse navigator lab. The second floor includes family care offices and clinical services.
“Today, the vision of many becomes a reality,” said Trish Weber, vice president and chief operating officer for Franciscan Health Mooresville and Carmel. “More important, we have again expanded our healthcare ministry to Mooresville ad Morgan County residents.”
Franciscan Health says the project also involved work to modernize heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical systems, as well as the installation of a new nurse call system and upgrades to roofs, siding and sidewalks.
The hospital says it currently has 118 licensed beds and employs more than 350 full-time clinical and support staff.
