Franciscan Health plans to build a $50 million medical complex and micro-hospital near U.S. 135 and Stones Crossing Road, in Johnson County. The project will include an 85,000-square-foot outpatient and specialty care pavilion, which will connect to a 20,000-square-foot micro-hospital with an emergency department. Franciscan expects to begin construction in March 2017, with completion in late fall 2018. The Franciscan pavilion will be three stories and include 58 patient exam rqooms for family medicine and internal medicine services. The complex will include six consultation rooms, a pediatric wing with 16 exam rooms; a 15-room “flex clinic” that specialty physicians will use on a rotating basis; a rehabilitation area with seven treatment bays for hand therapy, speech therapy and other activities; office space for obstetrical and gynecological care; and a wellness/spa area.
