INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A groundbreaking ceremony was held Thursday morning for a new four-story Health Pavilion on the University of Indianapolis’ campus.

The $28 million, 160,000 square-foot building will be the new home for UIndy’s programs in nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychology, athletic training and social work. It will also house clinical facilities to serve the community and have a café, 140-seat auditorium and event space.

UIndy’s president said it has been 20 years since a new academic building has been put in place.

“It will mean extending our academic reach. It will mean creating new academic programs. It will mean continuing that bridge of having students study  and having practice. And it will mean community development, a community renaissance,” Robert Manuel, University of Indianapolis President, said.

The UIndy Health Pavilion is part of a five-year, $50 million university and neighborhood development effort.

The Pavilion is scheduled to open next August.
