CEDAR LAKE — It was a beautiful late fall day and Cedar Lake was celebrating the blessing and dedication of the new state-of-the-art Franciscan Physician Network’s Cedar Lake Health Center.
This new building is at 6831 W. 133rd Ave., just a few blocks east of the intersection of 133rd Avenue and Morse Street. It is an area that is starting to become the downtown of Cedar Lake.
Sister Jane Marie Klein was there in her capacity as chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the Franciscan Alliance. She said that health care is changing and is coming to the people.
“The Lord has blessed us with a beautiful day. We are praying for you around the clock seven days a week,” said Sr. Klein. She added, “We never close. Our sisters rotate every hour for your needs.”
Their website is www.ssfpa.org and click on “prayer.”
The Rev. Tony Janik led the blessing. He asked everyone to join him in asking for God’s blessing on this new Cedar Lake Heath Center and on all those who devote themselves to caring for the sick.
David Ruskowski, president Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Crown Point, and Tom Gryzbek, president Franciscan St. Margaret Health, welcomed everyone to the ribbon cutting. Ruskowski, serving as master of ceremony, introduced Dr. Troy W. Stovall and Dr. James E. Carlson, who will be running the Cedar Lake facility.
Both are board-certified family medicine physicians. Both doctors have a close working relationship with providers of other specialties within the Franciscan Physician Network, as ell as the general medical staff at Franciscan Alliance facilities.
This new facility will be serving the public with routine checkups, preventative care, pediatric and adolescent care, women’s health, geriatric care, school and sports physicals, wellness visits and immunizations and much more. The Franciscan Alliance owns the property adjacent to their new building so the center can grow, as it is needed.
