Lutheran Health Network is the largest healthcare provider in the northeast region of Indiana in the United States, with nine separately licensed hospitals and nearly 1,000 licensed beds, including 800 in Allen County, Indiana alone.[2]




Lutheran strives to provide the shortest Emerergency Room wait times. Wait times are posted on their website, as well as various billboards in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. QuickER times are updated every 15 minutes. Times are from when a patient checks in to when they are seen by medical personnel. Times are average.[4]

da Vinci[edit]

The da Vinci® Si system makes surgery easier on patients and requires less healing time than traditional surgical approaches. At Dupont Hospital, they have the most experience in the region with this unique system, and that provides surgeons with hi-definition vision, intuitive motion and maximum precision. The System is only available at Hospitals in the Lutheran Health Network.[5]
