Privately Financed St. Vincent Center To Open In 2017

INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday, National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver joined Pacers Sports & Entertainment owner Herbert Simon and St. Vincent Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Nalli in the groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Vincent Center. St. Vincent is a member of Ascension, the nation's largest Catholic and not-for-profit health system.

The five-story, privately financed, $50 million, 130,000-square-foot facility is expected to be ready for occupancy in 2017.

The St. Vincent Center will be a state-of-the-art training facility for the Indiana Pacers as well as a St. Vincent medical facility that will provide primary care, cardiovascular, and sports performance services for both athletes and the general public.

"I congratulate Herb Simon and St. Vincent for their collaboration on this facility which will provide valuable medical services to the people of downtown Indianapolis as well as athletes in multiple disciplines," said Silver.

St. Vincent Center will be located on a pie-shaped parcel directly across Delaware Street from Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The space had been previously used for Pacers employee parking.

"This is another hugely significant day for the future of our franchise as we strive to make our small-market team competitive in the highest echelons of the NBA," said Simon. "I am delighted that we have such a valuable partner in St. Vincent and can assist them in their mission to deliver world-class health care to the people of Indianapolis."

"The groundbreaking of St. Vincent Center and our partnership with the Indiana Pacers represents our commitment to bring high-quality, compassionate care to downtown Indianapolis in order to help improve the health of area residents and the community," said Nalli. "The St. Vincent Center will be a state-of-the art facility for the Indiana Pacers franchise, but more importantly a new staple and healthcare access point for the City of Indianapolis."

Primary care services will be available to the general public, including preventive care. Board-certified cardiologists will treat patients with cardiovascular disease while offering access to the nationally recognized comprehensive services, specialists, technology and compassionate care of St. Vincent.

Cardiovascular services will be provided by St. Vincent Heart Center physicians and clinicians where Hoosiers get nationally acclaimed heart care. The St. Vincent Heart Center is the largest heart care system in the state, with heart and vascular patient outcomes better than national averages. As a leader in cardiovascular research, St. Vincent cardiovascular physicians are pioneering better treatments and therapies for complex heart problems to help patients locally while significantly contributing to the progression of treating cardiovascular patients worldwide.

St. Vincent Sports Performance will offer sports medicine physicians, sports nutrition, sport & performance psychology, sports science and physical training, which the program currently offers to athletes of all ages ranging from middle school to professional. The Indianapolis-based program currently provides comprehensive services to Verizon IndyCar Series, NFL, NBA, WNBA and U.S. National Governing Bodies – USA Football, USA Gymnastics, USA Diving, USA Track & Field. St. Vincent Sports Performance also provides support for three universities and 30 high schools and middle schools in central Indiana.

The partnership also includes the St. Vincent logo on the Pacers' practice jerseys.

For the Pacers, St. Vincent Center will house two NBA regulation practice courts as well as the most modern training and medical facilities required by professional sports teams. When completed, St. Vincent Center will be the 20th stand-alone training facility built by an NBA team since 1999.

The current TCU Practice Court in Bankers Life Fieldhouse will continue as the practice facility of the WNBA Indiana Fever, but that space – under great demand for other events – will be free to be utilized in a much more comprehensive and versatile manner.
