Breaking ground in Brown County

Indiana University Health, the Brown County Community YMCA, members of the community and elected officials came together for a ceremonial groundbreaking on Wednesday, Sept. 13, to celebrate the upcoming construction of a new medical office building off State Road 46E and Maple Leaf Boulevard in Nashville, IN.

“Today, we’re celebrating a new, specially designed healthcare facility that will serve Nashville and the surrounding areas for years to come,” says IU Health System Regional Operations Senior Vice President Brian Shockney. “Our primary care office has been in Brown County for over 20 years, and this facility ensures that quality care will be provided for another 20 years.”

“The YMCA is proud to partner with our local leaders and IU Health to help improve the health of our communities,” says Brown County Community YMCA CEO Kim Robinson. “Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us and to everyone who is making this center of care possible.”

“What a wonderful asset the new medical facility will be to the people of Brown County,” says Brown County Board of Commissioners President Jerry Pittman.

Shockney explained how this project wouldn’t have been possible without the facilitation of the IU Health Foundation and a very generous gift from Burt Borgelt in honor of his wife, Sue Borgelt, for which the health center will be named.

Burt and Sue Borgelt provided the original funding for the Brown County YMCA, and their continued commitment to the community’s health will impact generations to come. Their most recent gift will ensure Brown County residents have a trusted team to go to for excellent healthcare, and it will pave the way for future expansion of programs and services for the community.

The new facility will be home to IU Health primary care, walk-in and orthopedics services. It will also allow for the addition of more specialty services in the future.

This project is planned to begin by mid-October with a planned completion around July 2024. Additional information, including plans for the current building, will be shared as it becomes available.
