After Hours Care is available if a primary care physician is out of the office, if unable to schedule a same-day appointment or unable to schedule an appointment after regular office hours.

The following types of illnesses and injuries are treated: allergy issues, asthma, bee stings, colds, cough, flu symptoms, lacerations, rashes, sprains, strains and urinary tract infections. Some blood work and other lab procedures may also be performed at the same location. Broken bones, chest pain and respiratory issues will be evaluated, but may require follow-up or further diagnosis at the Emergency Department of IU Health La Porte Hospital.

After being treated by a highly skilled After Hours Care physician or nurse practitioner, an informational letter will be sent to the patient’s primary care doctor for follow-up. A physician within the IU Health community will be recommended for patients without a primary care doctor.

Appointments are not mandatory, but highly encouraged to decrease waiting times and ensure timely care. Schedule an appointment by calling 219.325.5434. Schedule online at iuhealthlaporte.inquicker.com or download the InQuicker application to an iPhone.
