Community Healthcare System is expanding its medical services by adding a new Immediate Care and medical services center to meet the demand for quality healthcare in Northwest Indiana’s growing communities. The new facility will replace the current Immediate Care location at 1946-45th St. in Munster.
The 32,000-square-foot, two-story structure will be conveniently located at 10240 Calumet Ave., just a few blocks south of Community Hospital’s Fitness Pointe. In addition to Immediate Care, the new facility will offer diagnostic and imaging services, occupational health and physician offices for pediatrics, ENT and family medicine.
“This new center highlights Community Healthcare System’s proud history of providing high quality care to the residents of our communities,” said Randy Neiswonger, CEO of Community Hospital. “We are committed to investing in the services and technologies that contribute to the vitality of our region and the patients we serve.”
Once the new facility opens, the 45th Street location will be converted to much-needed physician office space.
“We serve a significant number of patients from Munster and our surrounding neighborhoods, and this new center brings together quality services in another convenient, readily-accessible location,” said Alan Kumar, chief medical officer of Community Healthcare System. “Community Healthcare System is well-known for its exceptional care and patient experience, so we are pleased to be able to offer our residents additional choices for their healthcare needs.”
The modern design of the building will feature glass elevators, glass handrails in the stair towers, expansive windows on all four sides of the building, premium landscaping and two detention ponds along Calumet Avenue in front of the building. Interior finishes will feature natural color tones and comforting aesthetics.
“Creating a space that is both welcoming and soothing corresponds with our philosophy of providing elements that help heal the mind and spirit, as well as the body,” Neiswonger said. “In healthcare, we recognize that they all contribute to better overall health and wellness.”
The new Munster Immediate Care Center is scheduled to open in October 2023.
