Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital (Wishard Replacement Hospital & Parking Garage) – Indianapolis, IN

Project Overview

The Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana is a state-of-the-art medical facility with 315 beds and 19 operating rooms. Coreslab Structures played a significant role in the construction of the hospital, which is designed to be eco-friendly and sustainable, with features such as green roofs, solar panels, and rainwater harvesting. 

The hospital also includes stunning art installations and is designed with patient comfort and convenience in mind. In addition, the hospital features an eight-story, 2,700-space parking garage with digital signage to help patients and visitors navigate the hospital campus.

The complex also features a 5,000 square foot “Skyfarm” on top of the parking garage, which is used for growing fruits and vegetables. The entire campus covers a massive 1,200,000 square feet, with precast being the material of choice for the hospital’s “rainscreen” design and the parking garage’s cladding due to its durability and cost-effectiveness.

The experienced staff is dedicated to providing the best customer service and going above and beyond to make sure their customers have a great experience.

Project Attributes:
The hospital and parking garage complex has a total of 18 levels, with the hospital having 11 levels and the parking garage having 7 levels and 2,700 parking spaces.

The hospital utilized 65,502 square feet of precast, including 361 pieces of 6″ thick solid “rainscreen” panels, 12″ thick insulated panels, 8″ thick solid interior panels, and some 4″ thick floor planks. The exterior panels have a light grey architectural limestone face mix with a light sandblast finish, while the interior panels and floor planks have a structural gray concrete mix with a form finish.

The parking garage had 65,344 square feet of precast with 438 pieces, including 8″ thick solid precast spandrels, column covers, walls, and insulated wall panels, all of which had the same light gray architectural face mix and light sandblast face finish as the hospital’s replacement building. Additionally, some solid precast louver panels were used on the parking garage’s base with the same architectural precast mix and finish.

Precast Benefits

The hospital/ambulatory care center and the Wishard Hospital Parking Garage are two key structures that make up the Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital complex in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The hospital structure utilized a steel frame with precast as the material of choice for its durability and ability to facilitate the rain-screen design concept.

The precast panels were designed to hang outside of the building envelope, allowing for breathability and the evaporation of water.

 The precast rain-screen design concept provides long-lasting durability, with minimal maintenance requirements, and helps to protect the building envelope from water damage.

The Wishard Hospital Parking Garage was constructed using a cast-in-place structure, with the same architectural precast look as the replacement hospital, tying the garage to the hospital and creating a cohesive campus complex.
