FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Parkview Health is planning to spend $55 million on projects at one of its Fort Wayne hospitals over the next five years.

The plans for the Parkview Randallia campus northeast of the city’s downtown include additional surgery suites, adding a cardiac catheterization lab and updating its birth center and inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services.

Parkview CEO Mike Packnett says its remains committed to the 60-year-old Randallia despite the opening of its $550 million Parkview Regional Medical Center on Fort Wayne’s far north side in 2012.

Packnett says the new hospital has drawn more patients than expected but many people have continued to prefer going to the Randallia campus.

Parkview expects it will add 150 jobs at the Randallia hospital, including nurses, technicians and food service workers.
