Ascension St. Vincent and Purdue University plan to build a neighborhood hospital in the Discovery Park District at Purdue, adjacent to Purdue University’s campus. Ascension St. Vincent has purchased seven acres of land from the university. The facility will bring inpatient and emergency care within the city of West Lafayette for the first time.  

Key features of the project include: 

  • eight private inpatient medical beds 
  • eight Emergency Department treatment rooms 
  • CT and other imaging services 
  • laboratory services 
  • modern architecture 
  • convenient parking 
  • State-of-the-art consumer-focused technology, including telemedicine. 

This neighborhood hospital is the first development of what will become a larger medical complex at the Purdue University campus that will focus mainly on outpatient care. 

Neighborhood hospitals bridge a persistent gap, offering quick service and serving as a middle ground between larger hospitals and urgent care centers. Inpatient hospital stays have become less common, and neighborhood hospitals provide convenient alternatives that are close to home and smaller, with easily accessible surface parking, shorter wait times and lower costs. 

Ascension St. Vincent will assume possession of the site in late spring 2022. Construction is scheduled to begin in summer 2022.
