On December 7, 2013, Health & Hospital Corporation opened its new $754 million Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital (formerly known as Wishard).  The new Eskenazi Health campus provides patient-centered care on 37 acres at the western end of the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus.  The 1.3 million-sq. ft. facility includes 315-inpatient beds with 19 operating rooms, four interventional labs, 12 labor and delivery rooms, a 90-bed treatment room emergency department with a 20-bed clinical decision unit, and 200 ambulatory clinic exam rooms and an adult Level I trauma center. On behalf of the Indianapolis-Marion County Building Authority and the Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County, the Bond Bank issued approximately $700 million (2010A1 & A2, 2010B1 & B2, and 2013A) in bonds to help finance the cost of building this new state-of-the-art medical facility.
