MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. - Leaders with the not-for-profit health center HealthLinc broke ground on a new clinic in Michigan City on Monday. The clinic will be located at 200 Alfred Avenue, behind Ivy Tech Community College.

The 39,000-square-foot building will include 33 medical exam rooms, two procedure rooms, 12 dental rooms, and a community center.

Patients can receive a number of services at the new building, including optometry, behavioral health, chiropractic, and more.

The facility will also be located on a bus route.

“We look to improve the health of our most vulnerable residents,” said Beth Wrobel, HealthLinc CEO. “We are investing more than $15 million into a new state-of-the-art clinic that will respond to the increase in need and ensure health equity is available.”

“The most vulnerable don’t always have access to a car and have a day of planning on a bus to get to a location," said Congressman Frank Mrvan. "To be able to centralize services and health care is a great thing."

The facility will also collaborate with Ivy Tech. The clinic's proximity to the college allows for health care students to receive hands-on experience in their fields.

Leaders expect the facility to be open in the first quarter of 2024.
