VA, Parkview to open mental-health clinic

FORT WAYNE – In partnership with Parkview Health, the Fort Wayne VA Medical Center will open a new outpatient clinic to treat patients with mental health issues.

At a news conference Friday, VA officials confirmed that a 27,000-square-foot building at 2500 E. State Blvd. would be leased for administrative offices and for outpatient purposes.

The building formerly housed Parkview’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, which has relocated to the Parkview Regional Medical Center campus off Dupont Road, Parkview Health spokesman Eric Clabaugh said.

The clinic will include space for 97 staff members in mental health and administration, and a parking lot with 165 spaces. It is expected to open in spring 2015, said Denise Deitzen, director of the VA Medical Center.

More details of the lease agreement will be revealed at a news conference Monday, Clabaugh said.
