Lutheran Health Network extends reach to Wabash County
Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly
Lutheran Health Network will begin to make its mark on Wabash County on May 1 when the Lutheran Wabash health center opens for business.
The outpatient center will provide urgent care every day of the week as well as physical therapy, X-rays and spaces for appointments with medical specialists. A press release from LHN said that Lutheran Wabash plans to continue to adjust and expand its offerings based on the needs of Wabash County patients.
“We’re complementing our existing comprehensive services with outpatient care that is both convenient and cost-effective,” Mike Poore, regional president and CEO of LHN, said in the release. “With many in the Wabash area already turning to our network for inpatient care, this is a logical next step.”
This opening will take place weeks before Parkview Health expects to open its newly-built Parkview Wabash Hospital, giving Wabash County patients more than one choice for their medical needs without leaving the county.
“As the leader of our community, I’m excited to have Lutheran Health Network in Wabash to offer our residents another health-care solution,” Wabash Mayor Scott Long said in the release. “Situated at this important corridor, Lutheran Wabash complements the existing care facilities already in place.”
There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. on April 30 at the new Lutheran Wabash building on Alber Street.
