The new Eskenazi Health Thomas & Arlene Grande Campus is on track for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver certification through the selection of sustainable materials and introducing a vast number of green spaces. Efficient building systems and an abundance of natural light will help bring daylight inside the facility while creating a welcoming and healing environment.

“A core part of our mission is to provide health care access to those who are underserved, and with the opening of this incredible new Eskenazi Health facility, residents of the east side will have increased access to some of the best care available in our state,” said Paul Babcock, chief executive officer of Health & Hospital Corporation of Marion County. “Having Eskenazi Health providers and critical public health services provided by the Marion County Public Health Department under one roof is a major step toward expanding access for our community across Marion County.”

In addition to walking paths, two outdoor spaces – the East and West Plaza of Allen Whitehill Clowes Charitable Foundation Gardens – will welcome patients and visitors. There will also be a large garden and an orchard along the north end of the campus.

“Access to high quality health care is crucial for healthy and vibrant communities,” stated Keith Graves, Indianapolis City-County Councilor for District 9. “I want to thank and commend Eskenazi Health for honoring and overdelivering on their promise to Indy’s east side. This new health complex is not just another doctors’ office. It will become a beacon of growth and possibility dedicated to a holistic approach to improving the quality of life for our residents.”

For more than 160 years, Eskenazi Health has served the Indianapolis community by investing in improvements that best meet the needs of patients and enhance the community’s quality of life.

“As we continue to fulfill our purpose of building and improving the quality of life among eastside communities, we are truly excited to see the new Eskenazi Health Thomas & Arlene Grande Campus come to fruition,” said Ashley Gurvitz, executive director and chief executive officer for the United Northeast Community Development Corporation. “We believe Eskenazi Health’s new addition in our community will have a positive impact and creates accessibility to health care to our underserved.”

“I couldn’t be more excited for us all,” said James Campbell, president of the Sheridan Heights Association for Neighborhood Enhancement (SHANE). “From the leaders of Eskenazi Health who had the vision, to the community members who came together to help focus that vision, to the people employed to build this beautiful complex, and to the husband and wife who share in the mission so strongly that they wanted their name and legacy forever attached, this is the result of shared passions coming together to build something great.”
