(Michigan City, Ind.) – Larson-Danielson is the design-build contractor for a new 39,000 square foot healthcare facility in Michigan City, Ind. for HealthLinc. The Valparaiso-based community health center held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new clinic on November 28.
The event was attended by U.S. Rep. Frank Mrvan, HealthLinc representatives, Michigan City Mayor Duan Parry, and representatives from the Economic Development Corporation Michigan City and Ivy Tech Community College. The new facility is located at 200 Alfred Avenue, behind Ivy Tech Community College.
The new clinic, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2024, features 33 medical exam rooms, 12 dental rooms, two procedure rooms, and a community center. The new location will offer a variety of services, including medical, dental, behavioral health, optometry, chiropractic, obstetrics and pharmaceutical.
“We look to improve the health of our most vulnerable residents,” said Beth Wrobel, HealthLinc CEO. “We are investing more than $15 million into a new state-of-the-art clinic that will respond to the increase in need and ensure health equity is available.”
In addition to traditional medical services, HealthLinc will offer addiction services, a medical-legal partnership, health insurance enrollment assistance, and a community outreach team at the new facility. HealthLinc is also collaborating with Ivy Tech Community College on the new facility and will offer health care students the opportunity for hands-on experience in their fields.
The project team includes Facet Architecture as the architect; Jones Petrie Rafiniski as the civil engineer; Frost Engineering and Consulting as the structural engineer; and Millies Engineering Group as the MEP Engineer.
