Northwest Health Lakeshore Surgicare, an ambulatory surgery center that provides comprehensive orthopedic, neurospine, pain management and podiatric services, recently expanded its facility at 3111 Village Point in Chesterton. The surgery center will open the newly renovated space, which added approximately 4,600 square feet, on Monday, Nov. 14.
The expansion includes a new operating room, additional sterilization support space, and private recovery rooms.
According to Josie McLaughlin, the facility director, the new space will improve operational efficiencies. She added that the private rooms will also allow Lakeshore Surgicare patients to recover for a longer period of time and increased storage will add additional room for new equipment and supplies.
“We are so pleased to unveil this much-needed expansion at Northwest Health Lakeshore Surgicare to better meet the increase of orthopedic surgeries at this facility,” said Ashley Dickinson, CEO, Northwest Health. “I also would like to acknowledge our teammates and our partner, Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute as well as their highly skilled physicians who provide exceptional safe, efficient and compassionate care for our patients there.”
