I would consider using a table to control the layout of your information.
It is possible to create a 'template' table in your library and add it to your text frame when needed. Each cell can be formatted using cell styles to streamline your work.
Can you confirm if the information in there is manually typed or generated automatically from another source (Data Merge, Placed file linked...) ?
From your example, is the the white frame with red stroke in the actual layout or is this to show the forum the areas in which you have your question?
Thanks all! I tried both the table solution from Eric Dumas and the single-frame solution as proposed by SJRiegel, and found the single frame solution to be the most elegant and simple (considering InDesign's limitations on table cell auto-resizing!).
Hope this thread helps others with similar issues.

In your redesign process, may I suggest some other changes to simplify your process going forward?
1) I notice that you have three tabs between your days and the corresponding times. For better control, this should be a single tab, with the tab stop location set in the paragraph style.
2) It is better to avoid using empty paragraphs to create vertical spacing. There is a Space Before and a Space After setting for paragraphs that allow that space to be better managed.
