Celebrating 10 Years Since Porter Moved a Hospital

August 25, 2012 – August 25, 2022

Ten years ago Porter Regional Hospital (now known as Northwest Health – Porter) brought the future of healthcare to Northwest Indiana.

On August 25, 2012, the new hospital opened its doors at 85 East US Highway 6. Beginning at 6 a.m. that morning, Porter moved a hospital. Thirty-five ambulances safely transported 95 patients to the new hospital in less than five hours.

That day, Porter introduced a patient experience unlike any other in the region – offering more advanced technology, clinical efficiency and added patient privacy and convenience.
