A new micro-hospital is planning to open in Hammond next week. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report the NW Indiana ER & Hospital will be the first and only physician-owned free-standing emergency room in the region.
The hospital is planning to host a grand opening ceremony on Friday, and the facility is expected to officially open next Monday.
“We’re thrilled to bring concierge-level emergency care to the community. We believe that compassionate care provided by board-certified ER physicians and staff combined with sophisticated technology is just what the area needs” said Dr. Scott Samlan, CEO and partner of NW Indiana ER & Hospital.
The Times reports the hospital will be open seven days a week, 365 days a year to treat patients for emergencies.
The 18,000-square-foot hospital has eight emergency rooms and six inpatient beds and is owned and operated by board-certified emergency physicians in conjunction with Nutex Health.
“By building the best team of doctors, nurses and support staff we can reimagine healthcare with an unwavering emphasis on patient experience and satisfaction,” said Samlan. “The highly trained staff are equipped to provide top-tier care for any medical emergency—ranging from serious illnesses, chronic conditions, allergic reactions, to broken bones, injuries, and anything in between.”
The hospital houses advanced imaging equipment, including MRI, CT Scan, X-Ray and ultrasound, according to the publication.
