The newest Franciscan ExpressCare and WorkingWell location opened on Monday, June 17 in St. John. The new location at 8345 Wicker Ave., across the street from Lake Central High School, replaces the former St. John ExpressCare location on 97th Lane, which closed on April 12.

At a blessing for the new facility in May, Chris DiGiusto, Franciscan Alliance vice president of ambulatory services, said, “I’m really excited for what we’re going to do for the community. This isn’t our first foray into St. John, but this location is really going to be amazing for us.”

Other Northwest Indiana Franciscan ExpressCare and WorkingWell locations include Crown Point, Hobart, Michigan City, Munster, Portage and Valparaiso.

Franciscan ExpressCare provides convenient, fast and complete urgent care for patients with non-life-threatening illnesses and conditions.
