(La Porte, IN) – La Porte Hospital is preparing to move into its new facility. The move date has been scheduled for October 24th.
During the move, assistance will be provided by La Porte County Emergency Medical Service which received approval Wednesday by the La Porte County Commissioners to help with the move. EMS Director, Andrew McGuire, said two ambulances will be provided to help move patients to the new hospital on State Street, just a short distance from the current hospital location.
La Porte County Attorney Shaw Friedman said all of the protections are also in place to protect county government from liability in the event of any mishaps during the move.
