Parkview Health is moving their tertiary hospital services from a location in downtown Fort Wayne, at its Randallia Campus, to a new campus on the North side of the city, located near the Dupont Road exit off I-69, known as the North Campus. The new facility will be named Parkview Regional Medical Center (PRMC), and is referred to as the Changing Spaces Project.

The existing Parkview North Campus is currently composed of two branded hospitals, a MOB and an Ambulatory Services Building. The service lines currently on campus include Women’s and Children’s, Orthopedics and the Comprehensive Cancer Center. The PRMC project willing include a Heart Hospital, new Medical Office Building and Trauma Level II services. A new Central Plant will also be constructed to meet the utility and loading dock needs of the expansion.

The approximately 954,000 square foot scope of work of new construction includes 60,000 square feet of structured parking underneath the hospital and  a new central plant/loading dock with tunnel connection to the new hospital. Approximately 58 acres will be directly impacted in the project.

 A significant associated with the project is to improve wayfinding to and around the campus. PRMC desires to develop a “patient, family and visitor friendly” environment which will enable one to easily locate the facility and then quickly and easily determine where to go.  Accordingly, design and construction of these new facilities will involve new wayfinding and signage programs.

FMG has completed the design program and documentation for the campus, Parkview Regional Medical Center, Parkview Heart Hospital, Partkview Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Parkview Orthopedic Hospital, various Medical Office Buildings, Outpatient Center, Cancer and other related buildings. FMG is also working on a comprehensive donor and historical recognition program. After a competitive Bid, the project was awarded to Jones Sign. A few of our design drawings are posted below. The campus and new hospitals are scheduled to open in February 2012. HKS is the architect for the new hospitals.
