Rush University Medical Center and Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush are expanding access to academic health care with a new, state-of-the-art professional building and surgery center planned for Oak Brook.
The project was approved on Tuesday by the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board, paving the way for a three-story professional building that will feature a multi-specialty outpatient surgery center. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2017 with an anticipated building opening in spring 2019.
“We want to make it as convenient as possible for people living and working in the western suburbs to receive the most coordinated, advanced health care from their Rush providers,” said Michael Dandorph, president of Rush University Medical Center.
The approximately 100,000-square-foot professional building, to be located at 2011 York Road in Oak Brook, will house an outpatient surgery center, offices for Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, and offices for other faculty physicians from Rush University Medical Center. Additionally, the building will include imaging and laboratory services. The project is a 50/50 joint venture between Rush and Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush. The total cost of the new building is estimated to be about $65 million. The state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center is estimated to cost $21 million. An attached parking deck, to contain about 485 spaces, is part of the plan.
