Construction of the new La Porte Hospital, La Porte, Ind., is continuing on schedule and is on track to be completed next year. According to an article in the La Porte County Herald-Argus, the new facility will serve as a replacement for the aging La Porte Hospital, and will be equipped with upgrades throughout.

Reporter Jade Glab writes: “The upgraded layout places specialties and departments strategically to provide a more cohesive flow for treating patients…Department leaders provided the design team with feedback on room mock-ups to assure their needs can be met in the most efficient manner. Patient rooms are expected to be substantially larger.”

Construction of the new facility will continue through winter with the goal of completing exterior walls by early December. Glab reports that the new facility should be operational by the fourth quarter of 2020.
