It is truly our mission, an honor we don’t take lightly, to care for our community.”
Mindy Kremer (VP of Development, Marketing, and Communications)
The Doctors are In
This fall, we held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction at a new Mercer Health Campus site! The Coldwater, Ohio based health organization is planting a new medical office building at Marion Industrial Park. It will be home to both the Mercer Health Medical Group at Maria Stein and Dr. Heather Kleinhenz when it’s completed.
More Access for Marion
With 75 locals from throughout Marion present in total, it’s clear that many in the area are looking forward to this facility and what it brings to the community. Mindy Kremer, who is the Vice President of Development, Marketing, and Communications at Mercer, said this about the plans:
“We are excited to enhance health care services in the Marion community. At Mercer Health we often talk about caring for our friends, family, and neighbors. This isn’t just something we say, it is a promise. It is truly our mission, an honor we don’t take lightly, to care for our community.”
We can’t wait to get to work on this new campus! We’re proud to stand with Mercer Health in their mission to provide the best medical care for communities all over Ohio.

“It will be a place where hopefully they feel like their loved ones can come and receive care, and they feel like they’re safe while they’re there.”

The Cherry on Top
Celebrating the successful completion of the Parkview Kosciusko hospital addition’s frame, we put together a special, final beam. Once we had it primed and ready for signatures, it was signed by everyone who is involved in this project. After that, the tower crane lifted the last piece, where our team secured it. And with that, the construction of the expansion framework was complete!

For the County
For Parkview leadership, this accomplishment is a testament to the community that they are serving. “Those grateful patients are always the key to what keeps us going,” says Scott Gabriel (President of Parkview Whitley and Kosciusko Hospitals). This expansion has been an ask by the Warsaw community for years. It will provide more accessibility for patients in the area to receive medical treatment. In the past, residents of Warsaw had to travel to neighboring counties for serious care. However, with the addition of this new section, that problem will remain what it was: a thing of the past.
“We opened up six years ago; the community immediately began asking, ‘When are you going to have inpatient beds; when are you going to have surgery?’ …To be able to say we’ve topped off our expansion project to include those services and more is great.”
Jeffrey Rockett (V.P. of Outpatient Services)
Just like the team at Parkview, we’re so excited to see the progress on this new section! We’re honored to join forces with them once again to meet the needs of this county.
“If there’s a time when we ever needed a new YMCA in Miami County, this is it…”
Mark Demchak (YMCA Director)
Residents of Miami County walked through the doors of their newly operational community YMCA location for the first time in February of this year. Weigand handled the project between all the parties involved as the construction manager. In helping to establish this new landmark, locals of Peru, IN can gather and grow together! Built just east of Peru West City Park, the new facility sits along the Wabash River.
It houses a number of features:
Rooms for groups and classes

A New Home for the Practice
In addition, the 65,000-square-foot structure is also part of a relocation project for the Logansport Memorial Peru Medical Center. The rooms designed for the new location provide more adequate space for updated labs and equipment. As a result, the onsite practitioner and staff are enabled to offer several types of services. These include:
Moving to the new YMCA allows the medical center to attend to a greater number of people and better care for the needs of the community. With the facility now up and running, locals can enjoy all that it has to offer!
The Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital in Mishawaka has finally opened it’s doors! The two-story, 56,500 square foot facility located just across the street from Saint Joseph Hospital by Edison Lakes, houses 40 beds for patients who are going through rehabilitation from stroke, brain injury, amputation and a range of medical conditions.
This stunning facility has lots of open spaces for rehab equipment with floor to ceiling windows for patients to be able to feel like they are enjoying the outdoors. The skills labs are equipped with kitchen and laundry appliances, as well as other home related spaces to help adapt to typical day-to-day living. The patient bedrooms have their own ensuite bathrooms where they can also relearn how to engage in self care and hygiene practices. Facilities like this are much needed to help people recover from complicated medical issues, where they can stay longer than a typical hospital would keep them.
A new home for Byron Wellness Community is well on it’s way! The Randallia corridor off of Lake and Beacon streets is where it will be located. The new facility will include 5 neighborhoods with a mix of assisted and unassisted living, green spaces, and community spaces, with a vast upgrade to the quality of life for the residents. Congratulations everyone!
The rain won’t stop us from getting a little dirty! ?️? This morning we had the pleasure of breaking ground at Van Wert Health on their two story, 84,000sf Inpatient and Surgery Expansion on the hospital’s main campus. This much needed expansion will also include accommodations for the most up to date technology, a new parking lot and lobby.
