COVID-19 is a nationwide crisis that is hitting us hard at home. As of July 12, Indiana had a total of 52,037 positive cases and more than 7,500 hospitalizations. La Porte, Starke and Porter Counties alone have had more than 1,590 positive cases and over 145 hospitalizations.

The fight to defeat COVID-19 is far from over, and all hospitals, including Porter Regional, La Porte and Starke Hospitals and our employees remain the frontline defense against the continued spread of this virus.

Ashley Dickinson, FACHE, is chief executive officer of La Porte and Starke Hospitals. Sean T. Dardeau, FACHE, is chief executive officer of Porter Regional Hospital and Northwest Indiana Market.
