A new state–of-the-art 47-acre integrated healthcare campus in Elmhurst, IL, just west of downtown Chicago, IL, is being constructed for Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare. The project began in March 2008 and it is expected to be completed in May 2011.
The project includes an 815,000-square-foot replacement hospital, a 25,000-square-foot addition to the Center for Health in order to accommodate its increasing outpatient volume, a 20,000-square-foot energy center and parking for 2,000 cars. The project also includes two medical office buildings that will each be 90,000 square feet. The medical office buildings are currently in the planning stages. One of the medical office buildings will focus on cardiac care and the other will focus on women’s services and cancer care.
