Rush University Medical Center is set to open an outpatient health center in the city's booming South Loop neighborhood.
The new location, at 1411 S. Michigan Ave., will be part of a new 15-story mixed residential/retail/office building, and comes on the heels of an increasing industry trend to strategize outpatient care.As a primer, this is currently the old post office union building that has been vacant for some time. We heard of a development coming here in April, but that was about it.
The article goes on to give some solid updates on the plan:
Pending approval from the state, the roughly 40,000-square-foot facility would open in the summer of 2018 and occupy part of the first, fourth and fifth floors. A staff of about 30 to 35 physicians would offer primary care and internal medicine, along with a variety of specialties including obstetrics and gynecology, endocrinology, otolaryngology, cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology and rheumatology. Weekend and after-hours visits as well as immediate care also will be available.While Rush will clearly be the main tenant, it will be interesting to hear what else is in store for this development.
