Ground has broken on a new outpatient facility for Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, a three-story building in the Lake View area of Chicago, Illinois. SmithGroupJJR designed the building, which is the first of a planned two-phase development that will add 156,000 square feet (14,500 square meters) to the Advocate Illinois Masonic hospital.
The new building adds major new care facilities to the hospital, including six outpatient operating rooms, 18 prep and recovery rooms, two linear accelerators, 16 infusion bays, and a medical teaching area. Once completed, the Center for Advanced Care will also accommodate digestive health and cancer care services.
Its front facade will comprise a curving glass curtain wall supported by a metal backing structure. The structural frame continues past the wall at its end, marking the building's entrance, leading to a three-story atrium.
LEED-NC Silver certification is sought for the project, which is currently targeting completion in 2015.
