Valparaiso Health Center of St. Mary Medical Center is expanding its outpatient services with a third floor, 20,455 square foot addition.
The project is expected to be finished by June, said Janice Ryba, CEO. The added space will accommodate the hospital’s growing physical therapy, medical oncology and gastroenterology service lines.
“The additional space serves to provide our patients with even more quality services at one convenient location close to home,” Ryba said. “Therapy services will be expanding their space due to increasing demand (and) medical oncology group will be housed at the center to see patients. We also will be enhancing and expanding space to accommodate additional physician offices.”
The Valparaiso Health Center opened in January 2013 east of Highway 49 at Burlington Beach Road. Services include an immediate care facility with the support of full-service imaging (bone densitometry, CT, mammography, MRI, ultrasound and x-ray), a clinical laboratory, therapy and cardiology services (nuclear medicine, EKGs, echocardiograms and vein ablation). Family medicine, gastroenterology, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pulmonology, orthopedics and spine, neurology, weight loss/bariatrics, surgery and a variety of medical specialties round-out the spectrum of healthcare providers available to patients.
The Valparaiso Health Center of St. Mary Medical Center is part of the Community Healthcare System of hospitals including Community Hospital in Munster, St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago and specialty hospital Community Stroke & Rehabilitation Center in Crown Point.
