Nestled in the county seat just off the shores of Lake Michigan in Northern Indiana, Northwest Health – La Porte has been the heart of healthcare in La Porte for more than 40 years. The 117-bed, four-story hospital provides acute care with strong programs in cardiology, orthopedics, surgical services, emergency care, oncology and maternal health. Just last year, the Northwest Health – La Porte hospital delivered care to over 78,000 emergency department patients, 17,000 admitted patients, and our highly skilled surgical team completed 25,000 surgeries. Northwest Health Family Medicine residents will rotate to this site for clinical and educational experiences in general surgery, surgical subspecialties, and may have some FMP patients who choose the beautiful maternity center to deliver the newest member of their family.Learn More
