Construction Update: Cook County Central Campus Health Center

Cook County Central Campus Health Center

The Cook County Central Campus Health Center rises up from the corner of Damen and Polk.

Iron rules the day as crews continue building the new Cook County Central Campus Health Center at 1950 West Polk Street in the Medical District. Clayco has had a tower crane at its disposal for just over a month now, and it’s doing big work, stacking steel beam atop steal beam for the future nine-story, 282,000-square-foot facility.

Gensler and Forum Studio shared design duties on this project. Read how the December press release from The Cook County Health & Hospitals System explained the health center’s capabilities:

Clinical services provided in the new health center will include outpatient specialty services such as dental, ophthalmology, oncology, infusion, dermatology, diabetes and endocrine and adult medicine. The first four floors will house clinical space, with the remaining floors serving as administrative space. The flexible building design allows for administrative  to be turned in to clinical space as necessary.

It is expected to open in 2018.
