St. Joe Pedestrian Bridge Reopens to Public

Free valet parking service to continue

FORT WAYNE, IN (July 30, 2008) — St. Joseph Hospital has reopened the pedestrian bridge leading to and from the hospital's parking garage. The bridge was temporarily closed to relocate communication lines and make room for a new medical office building (MOB). This new, 29,000-square-foot MOB is slated to open in September.

In addition to new construction, renovation of the existing 36,000-square-foot MOB will transform the new and old structures into one 65,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility. When completed, the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program will relocate from its current home at 2434 Lake Ave. to its new home on the St. Joe campus. Fort Wayne Medical Education oversees 31 family practice and nine orthopaedic residents during training that lasts between three and five years respectively.

Free valet parking at the hospital's front entrance, which was established while the pedestrian bridge was closed, is now a permanent service available Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. After 8 p.m., guests who are still at St. Joe will be able to pick up their keys at the front security booth.
