Lutheran Health Network has cut the ribbon on its $10 million outpatient center in Wabash County. The health system says Lutheran Wabash will initially offer urgent care, physical therapy and rehabilitation, as well as orthopedics, pulmonology and cardiology services.

The 30,000-square-foot facility also features occupational medicine, X-ray and lab services. Lutheran says the number of healthcare services is expected to expand by the end of the year.

"We’re complementing our existing comprehensive services with outpatient care that is both convenient and cost-effective," said Mike Poore, regional president and chief executive officer of Lutheran Health Network. "With many in the Wabash-area already turning to our network for inpatient care, this is a logical next step."

The facility officially opens to patients Tuesday. The health system says the location, at 1700 Alber Street, was selected because of the easy access it provides for area residents and businesses.
