The University of Chicago Medicine will break ground on an $86 million facility at Crown Point on Wednesday. The 130,000-square-foot outpatient center and microhospital with multiple specialties is expected to bring 150 clinical and non-clinical jobs to northwestern Indiana.

Plans for the facility were first announced in October last year. UChicago Medicine says it will be the health system’s largest off-site facility, serving about 110,000 patients annually.

The facility will provide a variety of services, including an emergency department with a short-term stay ward, a comprehensive cancer center, an imaging center, an outpatient surgery center, laboratory services and medical offices for the physicians and specialists of UChicago Medicine.

The facility is expected to open in the spring of 2024.

UChicago Medicine officials will be joined by Crown Point Mayor Peter Land and Lake County Corn Dogs owner Ralph Flores for Wednesday’s groundbreaking ceremony.
