New Patient Tower

Franciscan Health continues to build upon their excellent healthcare in Lafayette.  The new patient tower at the Lafayette East Campus is completely enclosed and scheduled to be open in the spring of 2018.  MSKTD is pleased to be the design architect for this new addition which will add capacity and serve as the new front entrance to the hospital.  The $40 + million project continues to progress smoothly and we have enjoyed working alongside Tonn and Blank Construction and the staff at Franciscan Health Lafayette.

Located in the first floor lobby of the IU Health Simon Cancer Center, the Cancer Resource Center (CRC) had its Grand Opening today – Nov 29. The CRC is a unique space designed for counseling and a variety of amenities that will educate and comfort patients as they begin their journey against cancer. This project was designed by MSKTD and built by Wurster Construction. The CRC was made possible through the collaborative support of the American Cancer Society, Cancer Support Community, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Little Red Door, and Susan G. Komen Foundation. Together with these five community organizations and IU Health, MSKTD is pleased to make a positive difference in the lives of those fighting cancer.

At 11:00 AM today, Indiana University dedicated their new IUPUI residence hall- North Hall. This 172,000 square-foot facility is the first new traditional residence hall since the campus was formed in 1969. MSKTD is the Architect of Record for the 2-tower complex which houses 700 students in an urban setting.

While the primary function is providing students with single and double-occupancy room accommodations, today’s collegians expect much more. North Hall features many amenities including a grand lobby area with a kitchenette and break-room, micro-lounges spread throughout each floor, a computer room, fitness room, laundry facility, large programming area and two classrooms. Exterior spaces are nicely landscaped creating additional social and gathering spaces for students as well. This new residence hall is a huge success for Indiana University and the IUPUI Campus in downtown Indianapolis!
