Capitalizing on its distance from the BP Refinery and the number of steel mills in the area, a new medical practice will focus on family care and industrial/occupational medicine.
“Our location fits the need,” said Shyam Patel, the office manager of the recently opened OccuMed Express Medical Clinic.
The clinic, located at 2230 Indianapolis Boulevard in Whiting, eventually will offer work physicals and physical therapy, Patel said. At the moment, the clinic is accepting patients and also caters to walk-ins and emergency care with a family practitioner, pediatricians, internists and general surgeon on staff.
Patel said the practice’s four partners saw a need in the area and also were enthused about addressing the needs of the nearby industries.
The practice is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. For more information, call 219.659.0333.
