Franciscan will close the Lake Ridge Health Center; patients will have to go elsewhere | Health care


The Franciscan Physician Network just closed the Lake Ridge Health Center in Griffith, so patients will have to go elsewhere to see the doctors who practiced medicine there.

Franciscan, who also recently closed his clinic at 300 W. 80th Place in Merrillville after longtime pediatrician Clark Kramer retired and drastically downsized his Hammond hospital, closed the Lake Ridge Health Center at 1573 Cline Ave end of July.

As a result, board-certified family physicians Tanya Danner-Roberts and Raymond Loza will begin seeing patients in new places.

Go on patrol with Aaron Crawford, a Cpl. with the Lowell Police Department, as he talks about joining the force, DUI application grants, and police training in Jiu-jitsu.

Starting in August, Danner-Roberts will see her existing patients at the Franciscan Physician Network Dyer at 919 Main Street in Dyer, where she will also welcome new patients.

“Dr. Danner-Roberts received his training at Rush Medical School in Chicago and did his residency at the Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago,” Franciscan Health said in a press release. “Her clinical interests include caregiving for women and children, preventive medicine and adolescent medicine. She believes that when you know better, you do better.”

Loza, who was also moved by the closure, now sees patients at the Franciscan Physician Network Hammond Clinic at 7905 Calumet Ave. in Munster.

“Dr. Loza was trained at the University of Illinois at the Chicago College of Medicine in Chicago and completed his family medicine residency at Mac Neal Hospital in Berwyn, Ill.,” Franciscan Health said. . “His clinical interests include preventive medicine, acute and emergency care, care of the newborn to the elderly, and evidence-based medicine.”
