Good Samaritan in Vincennes is set to start construction of the Charles C. Hedde, MD Health Education Center following approval by its board of governors. The health system says the $2.4 million facility will be located at its Vincennes campus.
The Good Samaritan Foundation will fund the total cost of the project.
“We are excited to finally begin construction on the Charles C. Hedde, MD Health Education Center,” said Matthew Schuckman, chief administrative officer at Good Samaritan. “Because of the hard work and commitment of our Foundation and our generous donors, this dream of the late Dr. Hedde can begin to take shape.”
The project was awarded to Vincennes-based Wolfe Construction.
Good Samaritan says the 4,500-square-foot health center will accommodate 244 occupants for stadium seating capacity and 144 occupants with tables and chairs. The center will be divided into three separate conference rooms for additional training classes that can be utilized by hospital staff, the community and physician residents.
Good Samaritan says foundation and structural steel work will begin in June and expects the project to be completed by March 2021.
