A new three-story, 40,000 square-foot building, which houses assorted medical services and offices, has opened next to Northwest Health – La Porte.
The building, which is attached to the hospital that opened in October 2020 at 1331 State St., marks the competition of the new construction and transition of services from the original hospital at 1007 Lincolnway.
The former hospital site continued to house the sleep lab, wound center, infusion center and two physician offices until the medical office building was completed. It also had been used most recently as a COVID vaccination site.
Northwest Health has said the former hospital site would be torn down if another use could not be found for it.
The new building includes a combination of physician offices and hospital-based services. It connects to the hospital on both the first and second floors providing convenience to patients and staff.
Included in the new office building are the hospital’s arrhythmia clinic, wound care, sleep center, infusion center and cardiopulmonary department. It also houses Northwest Medical Group’s cardiology, hematology and oncology, gastroenterology, general surgery, and urology practices.
The medical office building project was announced in spring 2020.
