Work has begun on the $3 million Franciscan Physician Network pediatric facility in Crown Point. The FPN Crown Point Pediatrics Center is currently located on South Court Street, but will move to the new 10,250 square foot location on Indiana Avenue next year.
The new facility will feature 18 exam rooms and children-friendly finishes. Franciscan Physician Network Director of Operations Mary Jo Spearson said the new facility will be a prime location near schools and will have more space than the current 6,600-square-foot building. “The Crown Point pediatricians have been vested in the community for 20-plus years and look to continue to provide pediatric care at the new facility.”
Project Manager Robert Florkiewicz expects the building to be done within ten months.
