It has also been called Hope Hospital and Methodist Hospital. The not-for-profit Parkview Health System now operates seven hospitals and several medical clinics throughout northeastern Indiana.

Location and future
Parkview Hospital is located near downtown Fort Wayne between East State Boulevard and Lake Avenue. However, starting with the Family Birthing Center in February 2008, all of Parkview's specialty units will be moving to the future Parkview Regional Medical Center located near Dupont Road and Interstate 69 in northern Fort Wayne. The Randallia facility will remain open as a community hospital.
