Topping-Off Ceremony Celebrates Michigan City Hospital Build Progress
MICHIGAN CITY, Indiana - Today marked a significant step down the road of progress, with a ceremonial topping-off of the steel structure for the new Franciscan Health Michigan City hospital at Interstate 94 and U.S. 421.
The final beam was signed by hospital officials, staff and other well-wishers before being raised during the ceremony, which was officiated by Dean Mazzoni, hospital president and CEO, and highlighted with guest speakers, among them Sister Jane Marie Klein, chairwoman of Franciscan Alliance.
The hospital plan was in the works for years and began taking shape with a ground-breaking and blessing ceremony last year.
Construction on the $232 million project is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2018.
