Dirt has been moving around for quite some time, and with the recent groundbreaking of the new Hancock Gateway South, business will be ramping up very soon for Hancock Health’s newest endeavor.
The project will be built at the intersection of County Road 600 West and U.S. 52 in New Palestine, comes with a price tag of about $31 million and will feature two ponds, as well as a wellness center, imagining capabilities and physician offices, as well as other interests. Officials with Hancock Health have stated the Gateway South will combine current physician offices in New Palestine that operate under the Hancock Health umbrella, along with the services offered at Family Fun and Fitness gym. According to Rob Matt, senior vice president and chief strategy and innovation officer of Hancock Regional Hospital, it will offer a little bit of everything.
The project will be built on about 60 acres of land, according to officials and is slated to be completed by the end of 2020.
Harold Gibson, of H. Gibson Land Surveying, helped Hancock Health with its Land Use Plan and believes the new project will be a catalyst for growth in New Palestine.
The Hancock Gateway South is the second Gateway project Hancock Health has embarked on.
The first, Hancock Gateway Park, is located near the I-70 and Mt. Comfort interchange and provides immediate care, along with imaging and lab services.
