INDIANAPOLIS –Today, Clarian is pleased to announce that construction has resumed on the first acute care hospital in Fishers, Clarian Saxony Medical Center. In February, Clarian announced that construction of the hospital would be delayed in response to deteriorating economic conditions.

“I am pleased that the hard work of our employees in conserving resources and a more stable economic environment enable us to move forward with construction of the Clarian Saxony Medical Center,” said Daniel F. Evans, Jr., president and CEO, Clarian Health. “We believe the medical center will help distinguish Clarian and Fishers as a national model for new urbanism with fully integrated, community-based health and wellness programs.”

Clarian Saxony Medical Center will be built in phases, initially bringing primary care, surgical, cardiovascular, sports medicine, imaging, chest pain and urgent care services, and a sleep center to the town of Fishers. The 44-bed, acute care hospital will be approximately 200,000 square feet, and the medical office building will be approximately 100,000 square feet.

“Clarian has a wonderful reputation for delivering high-quality care and being a committed community leader across Indiana, said Stuart Easley, Fishers Town Councilman. “We couldn’t be more pleased with Clarian’s commitment to the Fishers community, which is clearly demonstrated by it moving forward with the development of Clarian Saxony Medical Center, which will serve as an anchor in this important economic development.”

The $190 million hospital is expected to be complete by late 2011. Once complete, Clarian Saxony Medical Center will be the first and only hospital in the town of Fishers.
