IU Health LaPorte Hospital has a new website to share information with the public about the ongoing search for an additional partner. The site will also solicit input from community members on the future of health care in Starke and LaPorte Counties. Hospital officials say the website will provide frequent updates about the process.
Members of the IU Health LaPorte Hospital Board of Directors are seeking an additional partner to help the two Northwest Indiana hospitals thrive with a broader network, improved facilities, and a strong strategy that is more ready to respond to tomorrow’s healthcare challenges in this part of the state.
The website features quite a bit of background information about the process, including a “fact check” page where questions and rumors can be submitted anonymously and addressed.
IU Health LaPorte Hospital Board Chairman D. Drummond Osborn said in a statement, “During this time, nothing changes for the patients of La Porte and Starke. All of our physicians, nurses and other caregivers will continue to provide the high-quality, compassionate care that we are known for in the communities we serve.”
