Franciscan Physician Network welcomed its newest location with a blessing of the Legacy Hills Health Center in La Porte. Meanwhile, construction is progressing nearby at the new Franciscan Beacon Hospital.

Josh Schoon, project manager for Tonn and Blank Construction said he expects the enclosure of Franciscan Beacon Hospital to be complete by the end of October with overall construction finishing in spring 2020.

Once completed, Franciscan Beacon Hospital will comprise about 28,000 square feet of new construction and include an approximate 19,000-square-foot renovation of the current space at 900 I Street. The hospital will feature a full-service, 10-bed emergency department, eight inpatient beds, laboratory services and telehealth connectivity, and state of the art imaging and diagnostic equipment.

At Franciscan Physician Network’s Legacy Hills Health Center, Franciscan Health Michigan City President and CEO Dean Mazzoni welcomed guests to the dedication of the facility on Oct. 15, with Father Bill O’Toole presiding over the blessing.

Legacy Hills Health Center is located at 309 West Johnson Road in LaPorte. The facility is the new office for Dr. Kayla Nebelsick, DO, obstetrics and gynecology. For appointments or more information, call (219) 861-8785.
