HealthPORTE is Indiana University Health La Porte Hospital’s premier membership organization for community members age 55 and older.

We understand you have reached a unique destination in your life. Now, HealthPORTE is your destination point for happy, healthy aging.

The goal of HealthPORTE is to improve the health status of older adults in our community. It is also important to foster a social connection between our members, provide an opportunity to increase knowledge on health-related issues, and provide opportunities to explore places of interest.

HealthPORTE members are eligible to take advantage of services and events through IU Health La Porte organizations. Members are also provided with unique member benefits throughout the community.

HealthPORTE keeps its members current through newsletters, websites, special invitations to health screenings, and scheduled events.
