U. Illinois Hospital Plans $191M Outpatient Building

The University of Illinois Hospital and Health Science System is seeking state approval to build a $191 million, six-story outpatient building on its main hospital campus on the city’s West Side, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The 200,000-square-foot building would house clinics, a pharmacy, imaging services and areas for procedures, according to an application submitted by the hospital system to the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board. A bridge would connect the outpatient building to the main 462-bed hospital near the intersection of Taylor and Wood streets.

The project comes amid a national trend of hospitals expanding their outpatient services. It would allow the hospital system to “provide selected outpatient services in a more efficient manner than is currently possible, given the hospital’s space constraints,” the system said in its application to the state. About half of the hospital system’s surgical cases are now done on an outpatient basis.
