The community now has two convenient locations for urgent care with the opening on July 8 of a new Franciscan ExpressCare at the site of the former Michigan City hospital.
The new Franciscan ExpressCare is in the emergency department area of the former hospital at 301 W. Homer Street. It provides convenient, fast, and complete urgent care for patients with non-life-threatening illnesses and conditions. No appointment is needed, and the facility is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, visit FranciscanExpressCare.org or call (219) 214-4400.
The new ExpressCare joins the existing location at 4111 S. Franklin St., which is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Call (219) 873-2919 for more information.
Hospital services moved from the Homer Street location on January 12, when the new Franciscan Health Michigan City opened at 3500 Franciscan Way, on the northwest corner of Interstate 94 and U.S. 421.
