According to DeKalb health, the renovation will cover approximately 30,000 square feet of space on the north side of the DeKalb Health campus, including an addition of more than 5,600 square feet of space to the building’s footprint. The renovation will create dedicated space and amenities for an expansion of DeKalb Health’s growing therapy and business health services, as well as house an enhanced presence on-site for Fort Wayne Orthopedics. In addition, by organizing and more closely aligning often interrelated services like orthopedics, therapy and business health, the space can be more efficiently utilized, keeping operating costs down.

The entire project is expected to be completed in the summer of 2015. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
