Indiana University Health has selected a global company to serve as executive architect for its more than $1 billion campus redevelopment initiative in Indianapolis and Bloomington. The health system says there was "strong unanimity" in selection committee that chose HOK for planning, design and construction.
HOK has been involved in recent or ongoing projects that include the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Ohio State University, the BJC HealthCare Washington University School of Medicine Campus Renewal Project in St. Louis, Cedars-Sinai Advanced Health Sciences Pavilion in Los Angeles and University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro Replacement Hospital in New Jersey.
IU Health says the work involves consolidation of adult services at Methodist and University hospitals into one academic medical campus, a new regional academic health campus in Bloomington and consolidating women’s services at or near Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.
HOK was picked from eight companies that went through the request for proposal process.
IU Health Methodist and University Hospitals Chief Operating Officer Jonathan Curtright is serving as project lead and said "HOK earned the commission based upon their experience, leadership and alignment with our organization’s mission and vision. We must create state-of-the-art facilities for our patients, as well as the physicians, nurses and care teams that practice at IU Health."
Information gathering and forums are set to seek feedback on the work IU Health says could take "several years."
