St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, South Bend, Ind., plans to break ground in 2006 on a $355 million medical campus in Mishawaka, Ind. The system, part of Trinity Health, will consolidate two of its three hospitals into a new $175 million, 254-bed replacement hospital on the campus, which also will include medical offices. St. Joseph will convert its existing 95-bed hospital in Mishawaka to rehabilitation and long-term-care services and shut down its 283-bed hospital in South Bend but maintain medical offices and clinics in the city. The project was announced in 2002 but delayed by a leadership change, St. Joseph spokesman Michael Stack said. -- by Mark Taylor
