University of Chicago Medicine breaks ground on $86M microhospital

Representatives from University of Chicago Medicine held a ceremonial groundbreaking on a new $86 million, 130,000-square-foot microhospital and outpatient center on Aug. 3 in Crown Point, Ind., according to a report from the Northwest Indiana Business Magazine. 

Planned services include an emergency department, short-stay inpatient unit, comprehensive cancer center, medical and surgical oncology, a laboratory, and an imaging center. 

Representatives from the University of Chicago Health System said that its Crown Point site will expand access to all of its services in Northwest Indiana, and preliminary estimates indicate that the microhospital could see 110,000 patients annually.

University of Chicago Medicine said the Crown Point project is the first in Indiana and is expected to open in 2024 and employ about 150 staff members.
