Hospital construction is progressing

By The Paper staff

A new, state-of-the-art MRI and next-generation 64-slice CT scanner will be among the new equipment at the new Parkview Wabash Hospital.

The new facility will also include a full-service emergency department, diagnostic imaging, an inpatient medical and surgical unit and enhanced women's health services.

"This is a new chapter for healthcare in Wabash and we couldn’t be more excited to see this hospital come to life," said Marilyn-Custer Mitchell, president, Parkview Wabash Hospital.  “The community, as well as our team, is really looking forward to this service expansion."

Currently, construction includes installing casework and doors. Terrazo has been poured on the first floor of the hospital and tiling of floors on the second floor continues. The kitchen equipment has also been delivered and installation has begun.
Training on new equipment will begin in May for nursing, radiology, lab, pharmacy, oncology, respiratory and cardiopulmonary; non-clinical areas may also have department-specific equipment training.

The facility is scheduled to be completed by April 1, 2018, and is expected to open on June 27, 2018. Open houses and special events will take place in late May and early June.
