INDIANAPOLIS (UIndy) – The United Methodist-related University of Indianapolis broke ground June 19 on a four-story, $28 million Health Pavilion that will house UIndy’s healthcare and wellness-related academic programs, as well as industry partners and clinical facilities to serve the community. The building site is located at the southwest corner of Hanna and State Avenues.

With indoor and outdoor amenities open to the public, the building will be a new gateway to the UIndy campus, a landmark for the University Heights neighborhood and an integrated hub where faculty, students and healthcare professionals can collaborate on education and research.

Local developer Strategic Capital Partners will construct the 156,000-square-foot building and lease space to the university for its School of Nursing, Krannert School of Physical Therapy, School of Occupational Therapy, School of Psychological Sciences, Athletic Training Program and departments of Kinesiology and Social Work – programs that account for more than half of UIndy’s 5,400-student enrollment.
