Beacon Health System will build a hospital in Granger.
The company made the announcement Tuesday. The hospital will feature a full emergency department with 11 beds and will also feature “sophisticated imaging and diagnostic equipment.” There will also be eight in-patient beds.
The hospital will be built across from Beacon Health and Fitness, which is right by the Indiana Toll Road’s Mishawaka entrance and exit.
The hospital will cost almost $26 million. Ground will be broken this summer with an eye towards opening next summer.
“Patients want the very best medical care close to home,” said Kreg Gruber, Beacon’s chief executive officer of six months. “As we prepare for the future of health care, we want to be easily accessible in our physical locations, as well as virtually, so patients can connect with clinical experts and providers when and where they require medical care.”
Beacon also announced plans to bring Community Hospital of Bremen into its system.
“This really was a natural fit for us, and absolutely the best option for patients,” said David Bailey, chief executive officer of Community Hospital of Bremen. “As part of Beacon Health System, our community will have even greater access to convenient, high-quality health care.”
