General Info about La Porte 

Northwest Health La Porte is located in the heart of the downtown La Porte area.  We moved into our NEW replacement hospital in October of 2020. 

Northwest Indiana is a wonderful location to call home. We are close enough to Chicago to enjoy all the benefits of a metropolitan area without the traffic congestion and costs that accompany it, as well as a short drive to the lower Michigan shoreline and resorts.  The La Porte area, as well as the surrounding communities, is very family-friendly communities.  We have good schools, safe communities, low taxes, comparably low housing costs, access to shopping, 20 minutes from Lake Michigan and only an hour to Chicago.  Additionally, Indiana is welcoming to physicians with tort reform since the 1970’s resulting in a “friendly” malpractice environment.  

The La Porte community specifically has a small town charm with easy access to everything.  There are multiple lakes within minutes of the downtown area which are conducive to boating/skiing, as well as quieter ‘no wake’ lakes which are great for fishing and sailing.   Additionally, the surrounding communities of Valparaiso and Chesterton are also great places to live and are within a 30 to 40 minute drive if you choose to make that short ‘commute’.
