Hospital Built by Birmingham Firm Opens in Indiana

A $125 million hospital constructed by Birmingham-based Robins & Morton has opened in La Porte, Indiana.

Northwest Health – La Porte Hospital is a 204,000-square-foot acute-care facility with 84 beds, emergency services, inpatient and outpatient surgery, critical care and more.

“It’s an exciting day to see this new facility welcoming patients,” said Jim Poole, Robins & Morton’s senior vice president. “Supporting improved healthcare in the growing La Porte community through construction has been an incredible experience. We’re thankful for the opportunity to have been a part of it.”

Groundbreaking for the project was a little over two years ago. The project involved sustainable building practices and materials, and Northwest Health – La Porte Hospital is pursuing a Green Globes Certification.
