A group tasked with taking care of hospital facilities will consider two separate remodel projects aimed at increasing clinic space at a cost of about $1 million.

The Allen County Regional Hospital facilities board decided to pursue the two projects after a meeting Thursday, instead of moving all aspects of the hospital to its primary location.

One is to remodel the former labor and delivery unit at the hospital, in order to create a new specialty clinic. The specialty clinic would allow patients to see doctors affiliated with Saint Luke’s Health System in areas such as surgery, pulmonology, wound care and more. 

The other project would remodel the existing Medical Arts Building at Second and Madison streets, near G&W Foods, and use that as a physicians’ clinic. The ACRH health clinic at 401 S. Washington would move to that location.
