Northwest Health—La Porte (La Porte, Ind.), a full-service, acute care hospital, has opened [correct?] in La Porte.

The four-floor, 200,000-square foot facility replaces the aging La Porte Hospital and features 84 private inpatient rooms with private bathrooms. The two-story lobby features a monumental stair leading to a shared waiting room on the second floor and registration areas designed to maximize patient privacy.

The hospital, affiliated with Community Health Systems (Franklin, Tenn.), offers emergency, outpatient surgery, cardiovascular, critical care, orthopedic, and birthing and family care services. An adjacent 55,000-square-foot, three-story medical office building (MOB) is slated to open in 2021 and will house physicians’ offices, an infusion center, sleep lab, and wound care.

Gresham Smith (Nashville, Tenn.) was the architect on the hospital and MOB.
