Ascension St. Vincent NICU Construction

Big changes are coming to PMCH in 2021, and we could not be more excited!

Level 1 Trauma Emergency Department

We are now a Level 1 Trauma Center and Burn Unit! We are currently the only hospital in the state of Indiana with both adult and pediatric Level 1 Emergency Department and Trauma Care underneath one roof. Our Trauma care specialists, accredited and certified staff, dedicated equipment, and sophisticated resources are readily available when trauma patients arrive. We have 24-7 access to onsite specialty services such as anesthesiology, plastics surgeons, critical care specialists, and radiologists -- available to provide exceptional care as injuries dictate.

New Construction

Ascension St. Vincent Hospital is currently undergoing a $325 million expansion, which includes:
  • Relocation of Ascension St. Vincent Women’s Hospital and addition of 109 new, private NICU rooms
  • New Brain and Spine Hospital
  • New parking garage and additional surface parking
  • Care for Women and Infants

Women's Hospital

Ascension St. Vincent Women’s Hospital will be relocated from Township Line Road to the Ascension St. Vincent Hospital Campus and will include the addition of 109 new, private neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) rooms. With approximately 268,000 square feet of new space, mothers and babies will be cared for under one roof, enabling Ascension St. Vincent to continue to offer the highest level of care for mothers and infants who are the most critically ill and need complex, comprehensive care with the goal of reducing maternal and infant mortalities in Indiana. Ascension St. Vincent Women’s Hospital, home to the state’s largest NICU, is currently one of only two Level IV Perinatal Healthcare Centers in Indiana.

This new structure, which will be connected to Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, will bring together all related departments, including mother/baby care, high-risk OB, labor and delivery, NICU, and support and administrative services, as well as public spaces. The co-location of pediatric specialty care, along with maternal and NICU services, will ensure seamless care that keeps babies and mothers close together.
