Site work began this week on a new $3 million Franciscan Physician Network pediatric facility that will provide more space to care for Crown Point area families. The new facility will be 10,250 square feet with 18 exam rooms and child-friendly finishes.

The FPN Crown Point Pediatrics Health Center, currently located at 1505 S. Court St., will move to the new location, next to the FPN St. Clare Health Center on Indiana Avenue in 2020. The building is expected to be completed in nine to ten months.
