(WASHINGTON) - Daviess Community Hospital held a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday evening marking the formal opening of its new five-million dollar, 18,350 square foot CORE Center.

The combined orthopedic, chiropractic and rehabilitation facility will serve patients and families in the greater Daviess County region.

The new CORE Center, which stands for chiropractic, orthopaedic, and rehabilitation excellence, is located at 421 East Van Trees Street.

The new facility is expected to double the patient capacity for regional orthopedic and chiropractic-related services and is modeled after the successful combined practice operations of IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, according to David Bixler, Chief Executive Officer of Daviess County Hospital.

The new facility, which includes a state-of-the-art rehabilitation pool and underwater treadmill and onsite x-ray imaging services, was developed on the site of old retail operations between Main Street and Van Trees Street in downtown Washington.

No tax dollars were used in the development of the building itself and the City of Washington, the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA), the Daviess County Economic Development Foundation and private donations jointly provided the funds for a new parking lot and the green space for a pocket park north of the CORE Center, according to Ron Arnold, executive director of the Daviess County Economic Development Corporation (DCEDC).

A restaurant/café is also planned as part of the new complex.

A deteriorating building that formerly housed a local service club was demolished and cleared for the parking lot and park.
