Construction continues on surgery suites

The new surgery suites, located on the second floor, are taking shape. Mounts for lights and cameras are being installed in the ceilings of the surgical suites. A separate air-handling system for the surgical suites is also housed on the second floor.

Temporary closure of Heart Center entrance

Thank you for your patience during the construction of our new St. Francis Hospital–Indianapolis patient tower adjacent to the Heart Center. When completed, this state-of-the-art patient tower will feature a new emergency department, private patient rooms, high-tech surgery suites, a new cafeteria and more.

As construction progresses, we wanted to make you aware of a change that will occur soon.

Beginning Aug. 2, the St. Francis Heart Center main entrance will temporarily close to allow construction to continue. The Heart Center patient and visitor access will temporarily shift to the Women & Children’s Services entrance, located just south of the Heart Center. Heart Center staff and volunteers will be in the Women & Children’s Services lobby providing directions and assistance.

The entrance closure should only last 45 days or less, and we are working to ensure you continue to have convenient access to the Heart Center.

Parking is still available in both the Heart Center and Women & Children’s parking lots. (Download a parking map.) Free shuttle service is offered Monday through Friday from 4:45 a.m. to 9 p.m. To call the shuttle directly, please call 416-8725.

We apologize for any inconvenience the construction may cause and appreciate your cooperation during this time of transition. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 851-1580.
