About Us


Welcome to the Community Healthcare System!

We built our organization around the notion that Extraordinary Care begins with Extraordinary People. Many hospitals can offer similar services, but what makes our care Extraordinary is the people who provide that care. We ask ourselves: “What kind of care would we expect for our loved ones?”

From awards for innovation to national recognition for superior outcomes, Community Healthcare System has distinguished itself as the area's leading provider of healthcare. Our hospitals - Community Hospital in Munster; St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago; and St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart - have a long history of “firsts,” advancing new medical technologies. We work together to develop best practices and bring to our community the very best that medicine can offer.

We are committed to making Community Healthcare System the best place for our patients to come for medical care, and the best place for our staff and physicians to practice medicine. We pay special attention to the experience of healthcare - how our patients perceive their care, how well our physicians and staff are supported. This dedication to people has enabled us to “grow” many of our own leaders, rewarding individual achievement and providing lifelong advancement opportunities. I have devoted nearly 30 years of my career here, getting my start in pharmacy and advancing through administrative roles. As a member of our team, you, too, can realize opportunities as vast as our scope of services across three hospitals.

Working here, you'll be a part of a large and diverse family of people who are passionate about making a difference, about making our community a better place. If making a difference is the reason you've chosen healthcare, you'll find a good fit with the Community Healthcare System.
