About the Organization
NorthShore Health Centers is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality, affordable healthcare to the uninsured and underinsured in Porter and Lake Counties. NorthShore currently has five locations providing medical care. Patients are seen on both a scheduled and walk-in basis. After-hours services are also available through Urgent Care at three office locations, the Scottsdale, Lake Station and Merrillville offices. We offer Optometry services at our Lake Station medical location.
NorthShore has four dental offices, one located in Portage, one in Lake Station, one in Merrillville and one in Hammond which provide preventative as well as corrective dental care to the communities we serve.
Our facilities employ general practitioners, obstetricians, midwives, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, prenatal care coordinators, and community outreach workers. Behavioral Health Consultants work with our Primary Care Providers to ensure that emotional and behavioral issues are addressed as well as the physical. We address our patient's entire health and well-being.
Other Services: Digital x-ray, ultrasound, bone density scan, mammography, and laboratory services are also present on-site, and a fully functional pharmacy is available at the Lake Station Center and Scottsdale Center under the direction of pharmacists employed by NorthShore.
NorthShore is always striving to improve our quality of care.
