Edgewater Systems recently announced the launch of its new primary care facilities. Edgewater has acquired a successful primary care practice with offices in both Gary and Griffith. The practice, formerly known as Internal Medicine Center of Northwest Indiana will now be known as Edgewater Primary Care. The practice was started by Dr. Okechi Nwabara, an esteemed and well-known internal medicine physician who has been serving the community since 1984. Dr. Nwabara will remain on staff as both lead physician and medical director for both locations that currently serves more than 5,000 patients.
“Healthcare is changing and Edgewater Systems is once again, rising to the challenge by ensuring that we meet both the mental and physical health needs of our community,” said Dr. Danita Johnson Hughes, President and CEO.
Edgewater Primary Care is located on 3535 Broadway Avenue, Gary, Indiana and 1212 Broad Street, Griffith, IN. Both facilities will offer primary care services that include: health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute chronic illnesses. In addition to the customary primary care professionals, both facilities will be staffed with behavioral health professionals. Edgewater’s goal is to consider all mental health and physical health conditions at the same time, therefore giving a fuller understanding of the whole person’s health.
With the acquisition of our two new primary care offices, Edgewater looks forward to meeting the Northwest Indiana community’s comprehensive health care needs.
Edgewater will continue to do business as Edgewater Behavioral Health Services for its behavioral health programs.
