Neuroscience Center taking form at IU Health
— Construction is about 80 percent complete on the first phase of the Neuroscience Center, a sweeping, streamlined addition to the Indiana University Health complex.
The massive building on the corner of West 16th Street and Senate Avenue is six stories and encompasses 270,000 square feet.
It is designed to help IU Health be more competitive in neurosciences and become a destination center in the Midwest for patients needing treatment for brain and nerve maladies.
The first phase, set to open in August, includes a walk-in care and imaging center. It also will include an outpatient rehab area, conference rooms, auditorium, fitness center, pharmacy, restaurant and skywalk connecting to the people mover and Methodist Hospital.
The second phase -- a research building with laboratories -- will break ground this summer and open next year.
The $475 million project is being paid for by IU Health, Landmark Healthcare LLC and the city of Indianapolis.
The architect is Cannon Design.
