MISHAWAKA, INDIANA – The new 254-bed Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center, located on the 90-acre Edison Lakes Medical Campus in Mishawaka, Indiana, has opened.

At the core of the Edison Lakes Medical Campus is a two-story diagnostic and treatment center with a six-story bed tower that includes an emergency department, imaging center, diagnostics and 16 operating rooms. Inpatient units include maternity, pediatrics, neonatal intensive care, as well as medical, surgical and intensive care.

The project also features a medical office building, connected to the hospital. The building includes a comprehensive cancer center, physician offices and retail space.

The overall hospital campus is organized by a two-story public concourse that provides access to all services and amenities, including food service, conference and educational facilities, and retail areas. Patients and hospital visitors can enjoy a coffee shop, gift shop, flower shop, business center and credit union within the hospital facility.

The campus includes several outdoor destinations with a series of ponds and walkways for the use and enjoyment of patients, visitors, physicians, staff and neighbors. These connections to nature include Chapel Garden, Healing Garden and a Dining and Café Terrace.

“An integrated design approach and commitment to be a pilot project for the Green Guide for Healthcare has addressed the shared mission of providing the finest patient care while also ensuring a healthy environment and providing economic benefits from reduced operating costs, improved productivity, and better patient environments,” says Nancy R. Hellyer, CEO for Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center.

Sustainable strategies include water efficient landscaping, alternative transportation and reduced light pollution. In addition, the campus design maintains pre-development hydrology through effective stormwater management techniques utilizing a balance of dry detention, wet detention and bioswale designs. The project targets a reduction in potable water usage by 50%.
“Our ultimate goal was to deliver a cost-effective facility to help SJRMC attract and retain staff, increase worker safety and productivity, demonstrate sustainable leadership, build community good will and set an example for future development in the city and the region,” says HOK Project Manager Brian Smyth.
