More About NorthShore Health Centers

NorthShore Health Centers is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality, affordable healthcare to everyone, including the uninsured and underinsured in Porter, Lake, La Porte, and Jasper Counties. NorthShore currently has over 20 locations between full-service clinics and primary care clinics in local school districts and Strack & Van Til grocery stores that provide medical, dental, vision, chiropractic, mental health, and medication assistance through onsite pharmacies. Patients are seen on both a scheduled and walk-in basis. After-hours services and urgent care needs are also available at many of our locations including Saturdays at six of our clinics including Portage, Lake Station, Hammond, Schererville, St. John, and Crown Point Centers. Click on the location name for more information on services and hours for that specific location.

NorthShore has four dental offices located in Portage, Lake Station (Dr. Fernando Rivera Dental Center), Merrillville, and Hammond, which provide preventative as well as corrective dental care to the communities we serve. NorthShore has recently added Chiropractic services to our Portage, Hammond, Lake Station, and Chesterton clinics to assist patients with spinal or musculoskeletal concerns.

NorthShore is always striving to improve our quality of care. Our facilities employ primary care doctors, obstetricians, midwives, pediatricians, nurse practitioners, prenatal nurses, family support specialists, case managers, patient navigators, and community relations specialists. Our Psychiatrists, Behavioral Health Consultants, and Substance Abuse Counselors work with our Primary Care Providers to ensure that emotional and behavioral issues are addressed as well as physical ones. We address your entire health and well-being. Our objective is to improve the health of the community, one patient at a time.

Digital x-ray, ultrasound, bone density scan, mammography, and laboratory services are also present on-site. A fully functional pharmacy is available at the Portage, Chesterton, Lake Station, Hammond, Merrillville, and DeMotte health clinics under the direction of pharmacists employed by NorthShore.

Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP), Medicaid, and Marketplace enrollment services are available Monday through Friday on both an appointment and a walk-in basis, and Spanish-speaking employees and translation services are at all sites to provide Spanish-speaking patients with interpretation assistance.

NorthShore offers a sliding scale based on income for those with no medical insurance who qualify. Based on yearly household income, patients can pay from a minimum of $25 (0% on the sliding scale) up to $65 (100% on the sliding scale) for an office visit. This sliding scale does not cover lab and other outside fees, however, as those prices are set by third-party providers.

This health center receives HHS funding and has Federal Public Health Services (PHS) deemed status with respect to certain health or health-related claims, including medical malpractice claims, for itself and its covered individuals.
