DYER, Ind., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Construction on northwest Indiana's latest Medical Resort™ development is now underway. Mainstreet® and Symphony Post Acute Network broke ground today on their newest partnership together, the Claremont of Dyer.
The property, located at 1532 Calumet Ave. in Dyer, boasts 130 beds, 82,108 square feet and will provide short-term rehabilitation and therapy in a comfortable, hotel-like setting.
