Gary Methodist to Break Ground on $10 Million Renovation

Methodist Hospitals in Gary, Ind., will break ground soon on a renovation of its emergency department and intensive-care unit, part of a $31 million revamping of the Gary hospital.

The hospital system intends to start construction on the Northlake Campus ER next month with an October 2016 completion date.

The $10 million renovation of the Gary ER is projected to start a 10-year, $134 million upgrade of Methodist's facilities in Gary and Merrillville. The hospital system recently received approval from the U.S. Office of Civil Rights to move forward with the project, a result of a 1979 consent degree requiring Methodist provide the same level of services at both hospitals.
