University of Chicago Medicine Breaks Ground on New Micro-Hospital

The micro-hospital is expected to open in spring of 2024

By HFT Staff

PMB and the University of Chicago Medicine recently broke ground on a new two-story, 130,000-square-foot multispecialty care center and micro-hospital in Northwest Indiana for what will be the academic health system's largest off-site facility and its first freestanding building in Indiana. The $121 million care center is expected to open in spring 2024. 

Since October 2021 when the initiative was announced, plans for the new facility have evolved and grown. Hospital leadership worked with partners in the project and Crown Point officials to make sure the new facility can meet future healthcare demands of the Northwest Indiana community. The Crown Point care center will include: 

  • a micro-hospital with an eight-bed emergency department and a short-stay inpatient unit 
  • a comprehensive cancer center with infusion therapy, as well as radiation, medical and surgical oncology 
  • an imaging center with MRI, CT, PET, X-ray and ultrasound capabilities 
  • an outpatient surgery center 
  • laboratory services 
  • medical offices with access to the University of Chicago Medicine's physicians and specialists, including those in cancer care, cardiology, digestive diseases, orthopedics, neurosciences, pediatrics, primary care, surgical specialties, transplant care and women's health.
