INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Community Health Network hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new $7.3 million connector bridge between Community North and Community Heart and Vascular.

The bridge will make it easier and more convenient to transport patients between facilities.

According to a release, in 2016 more than 280 patients were transported between the facilities. The number is expected to grow this year.

Some of the amenities that will provide connection care include:

  • Nine specialty phones with dedicated Wi-Fi for use in an emergency situation
  • Easy access to emergent pharmacy supplies and an AED
  • Fogged and mirrored glass to maintain patient privacy
  • Spacious walkway that allows two beds or chairs to pass each other during transport

The ribbon cutting ceremony was at 10:30 a.m.
