Porter Health Care System serves residents of Northwest Indiana. The hub of the system is the new Porter Regional Hospital, located at 85 East U.S. Highway 6 in Valparaiso. This new hospital provides a patient experience unlike any in the region -- offering all private rooms and the greatest level of clinical efficiency, advanced technology and patient convenience. Its award-winning centers of excellence continue to receive national recognition and accolades from many organizations such as the Joint Commission, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, the Society of Chest Pain Centers, and the American Heart Association.
Porter Regional Hospital was the first to offer a Heart Valve Center in the region, Selective Internal Radiation Therapy for liver cancer treatment in the region, and minimally invasive hip replacement surgery using OSI technology. Patients travel to Porter from beyond Northwest Indiana, including other states to receive some of these treatments.
The health care system also includes:
- Portage Hospital, specializing in inpatient Physical Rehabilitation and houses a full service Emergency Department as well as Shoreline Surgery Center for ambulatory surgery

Throughout Porter Health Care System, patients come first. The system’s priority is to consistently deliver medical excellence and patient-centered care in every facility and in every physician office.
