Methodist Hospitals strives to respond to the unique needs of our community. Through the addition of new programs and services, Methodist continues to change the way healthcare is delivered in Northwest Indiana.
Endoscopy Center at IMA
Methodist Hospitals has acquired the IMA Endoscopy SurgiCenter, located at 8895 Broadway in Merrillville. This will increase the number of endoscopic procedures the hospital performs by more than 2,500 each year.
“We are happy to have this opportunity to improve our facility and equipment and more closely align with Methodist Hospitals,” said Daniel Hurwich, MD, president of Digestive Medicine Associates.
Methodist President and CEO, Ian McFadden added, “We are pleased to partner with such an outstanding group of physicians and look forward to the excellent care delivery this brings to the communities we serve.”
Lung Care Center
The new Lung Center at Methodist Hospitals is a multi-disciplinary resource for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of lung disease. It houses some of the most advanced technologies in Northwest Indiana, including Northwest Indiana’s first Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy (ENB) technology.
ENB uses GPS computer guidance to locate even the most remote tumors of the lung and determine whether they are malignant or benign.
In addition to the ENB, the new Lung Center offers the latest generation, most advanced Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) and the most advanced radiation therapy unit for lung cancer treatment.
Orthopedic and Spine Center
New orthopedic and spine care facilities are in the works at both the Midlake and Southlake campuses. These patient-friendly centers will feature spacious waiting areas, physician offices and examination rooms. The new designs will facilitate patient flow.
The centers will offer an extensive array of specialties.
Already equipped with Northwest Indiana’s only Biplane Catheterization Lab, considered the “gold standard” for neurovascular intervention, Methodist Hospitals has obtained the next generation of this advanced equipment.
Methodist’s new GE Imaging Suite provides a cohesive treatment center that delivers three-dimensional images for faster diagnosis and treatment. All of this is accomplished using less dye and radiation.
“Methodist Hospitals is proud to deliver the best patient experience in Northwest Indiana,” McFadden said. “We are “leading the way to better health” through continuous improvement and growth.”
