Fort Wayne-based Lutheran Health Network has broken ground on a new outpatient center in Wabash. The health system plans to invest $10 million into the facility, which is expected to create 36 jobs.
Lutheran says the Lutheran Health Wabash medical office building will include a primary care and family medicine component, in addition to a physical therapy and rehabilitation area, an urgent care clinic, a full laboratory, a diagnostic imaging suite, an infusion therapy center and timeshare space for additional specialists. It will also include a satellite office for the Orthopedic Hospital of Lutheran Health Network.
"Our focus is to provide added convenience and choice for patients who prefer the range of services we are able to offer," said Brian Bauer, chief executive officer of Lutheran Health Network. "This outpatient center will bring LHN-affiliated and independent providers together under one roof, which we believe best addresses the unique needs of this community."
The 30,000 square-foot outpatient center is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
