New HealthLinc facility in Michigan City, IN

Larson-Danielson is proud to announce the completion of our latest healthcare construction project, a state-of-the-art, three-story medical office building for HealthLinc in Michigan City, IN. This impressive facility, which opened in March 2024, is the result of a successful design/build collaboration with our sister company, Facet Architecture.

In 2021, then-HealthLinc CEO, Beth Wrobel, recognized the urgent need for enhanced health services in Michigan City and reached out to Larson-Danielson to contribute our construction expertise to this transformative project. As a local company with deep roots in the community, we were eager to be a part of the initiative that would significantly improve the lives of our neighbors.

Valuable Partnerships

The facility, designed by Facet Architecture, offers a modern yet efficient design. It houses a wide range of services, including medical, dental, behavioral health, optometry, chiropractic, podiatry, obstetrics, and a full-service pharmacy. In addition, it will provide addiction services, a medical-legal partnership, health insurance enrollment assistance, and a dedicated community outreach team.

In an innovative move, the new clinic, strategically located next to Ivy Tech‘s campus, will also serve as a “learning lab” for students. This partnership with Ivy Tech will allow students to gain valuable hands-on experience and be better prepared to enter the healthcare workforce. The partnership with Ivy Tech is a testament to the facility’s commitment to not only improving the community’s health but also its education.

At Larson-Danielson, we take great pride in delivering projects that not only meet but surpass our clients’ expectations. We are thrilled to have partnered with HealthLinc as well as Facet Architecture on the design/build of this significant development. Their mission aligns with our own – to build up the communities we serve. As said by David Merkel, our vice president and the project manager for this facility, being part of a project that improves people’s lives in our community is a privilege.

New DesignBuild Facility Will Improve Lives

HealthLinc’s newest clinic is now officially open for business and celebrated its grand opening on April 2. With a wide array of health services available, the facility is set to improve the community’s health and wellbeing significantly. The clinic’s strategic location and the partnership with Ivy Tech will also provide more opportunities for the community and the students.

The completion of this design/build healthcare construction project is not just a significant milestone for HealthLinc but also for us at Larson-Danielson. It reflects our commitment to quality, value, and relationships, and our capacity to deliver on complex design/build projects. It is a tangible manifestation of our dedication to improving our communities, including their infrastructure and health services.

We are delighted to have been a part of HealthLinc’s dream to create a healthier Michigan City. As we celebrate this milestone, we look forward to continued collaboration with HealthLinc and other organizations that share our commitment to enhancing the quality of life in the communities we serve.

In the end, it’s not just about construction; it’s about building healthier, more resilient communities. And that’s something we at Larson-Danielson are proud to be a part of.

A new three-story, 45,800 square-foot building, which houses assorted medical services and offices, has opened next to Northwest Health – La Porte.

The building, which is attached to the hospital that opened in October 2020 at 1331 State St., marks the competition of the new construction and transition of services from the original hospital at 1007 Lincolnway.

The former hospital site continued to house the sleep lab, wound center, infusion center and two physician offices until the medical office building was completed. It also had been used most recently as a COVID vaccination site.

Northwest Health has said the former hospital site would be torn down if another use could not be found for it.

The new building includes a combination of physician offices and hospital-based services. It connects to the hospital on both the first and second floors providing convenience to patients and staff.

Included in the new office building are the hospital’s arrhythmia clinic, wound care, sleep center, infusion center and cardiopulmonary department. It also houses Northwest Medical Group’s cardiology, hematology and oncology, gastroenterology, general surgery, and urology practices.

The medical office building project was announced in spring 2020.
