Riverview Health is proposing a new emergency and urgent care medical facility on the southeast corner of Hazel Dell Parkway and 146th Street in Carmel.
The 11,500-square-foot building is planned on approximately 2 acres adjacent to an existing Riverview medical campus. Riverview plans to spend $8 million to demolish a vacant building that once housed Fifth Third Bank and construct a new facility to complement the existing medical buildings.
The facility will offer emergency room and urgent care services from board-certified ER-trained physicians. Emergency room care will be available 24/7, with urgent care services offered from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
“The medical facility will serve adults and children, treating everything from sore throats and high fevers to chest pain and other life-threatening conditions,” state planning documents filed with the City of Carmel.
The proposed facility will have a radiology suite, digital x-ray machine and test-equipped laboratory. If approved, construction is expected to begin in 2019 with an opening date in 2020.
Riverview recently started construction on a similar medical facility in Fishers and has plans to construct others in west Carmel and Nora.
The Carmel Plan Commission’s commercial committee will review site and building design at its Dec. 4 meeting, set for 6 p.m. at Carmel City Hall.
