Kindred Hospital Northwest Indiana is Closing

In May, Franciscan Health announced plans to downsize and transform Franciscan Health Hospital into a smaller healthcare facility focused on acute care, emergency care and primary care. We were notified at that time that our lease would be terminated within the next 180 days.

Since the announcement, Kindred has explored various alternatives to move our long-term acute care hospital services to another location within Northern Indiana. Despite an exhaustive search we have been unable to find an acceptable alternative and therefore Kindred Hospital Northwest Indiana will be closing effective October 10, 2021.

We will be able to continue serving the community through Kindred’s other facilities in the Chicago area, including:

Kindred Hospital Chicago North at 2544 West Montrose Avenue

Kindred Chicago Lakeshore at 6130 North Sheridan Road

Kindred Hospital Sycamore at 225 Edward Street in Sycamore

If any patients need continued care after the hospital closes, please be assured that we will take every step necessary to help them in relocating, including arranging for requested transfers and paying for any expenses. 

We expect to complete the closure by October 10, 2021. However, that date could change. 

During the transition, we will continue to provide our patients with care and services and tend to their medical needs.
