Indianapolis, Ind. — A host of state and local officials will be on hand Thursday morning when the University of Indianapolis breaks ground on a four-story Health Pavilion that will house several key academic programs, foster new degree programs and healthcare industry collaborations, provide community health and wellness services and fuel neighborhood redevelopment efforts.
Conceived in partnership with local developer Strategic Capital Partners, the $28 million, 160,000-square-foot building will be the new home for UIndy’s nationally respected programs in nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, kinesiology, athletic training and social work. The design also includes space for healthcare industry partners and clinical facilities that will serve the community and provide hands-on experience for students. The UIndy Health Pavilion – part of a five-year, $50 million university and neighborhood development effort – is scheduled to open in August 2015.
Reflecting the public-private cooperation that has made the project possible, the groundbreaking ceremony at 10 a.m. Thursday will include remarks from university President Robert Manuel, Mayor Greg Ballard, Metropolitan Development Director Adam Thies, State Rep. Justin Moed, City-County Councilor Jefferson Shreve and representatives of U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly and U.S. Rep. Andre Carson.
