A new Franciscan Health Crown Point hospital in Crown Point, Ind., will be at the center of a 500-plus-acre development that will bring multiple partners together build advanced healthcare services and medical education, plus a commercial, retail, and residential development. The property currently includes Franciscan Health Franciscan Point and a University of St. Francis facility. The development of 120 acres will add a new regional medical center better suited for the growing south Lake County and nearby areas in Porter, Newton, and Jasper counties.

The project will also double the size of the University of Saint Francis (USF) campus and expand Franciscan Point’s ortho ambulatory surgery center as a center of excellence in Northwest Indiana. A 60-acre parcel will serve as a potential home to Andrean High School’s new facilities. Approximately 250 acres is reserved for residential development and Tonn and Blank Construction will be developing an additional 80 acres for commercial use.
