Building a Better Healthcare Experience
Latest Project Updates
- Installation of overhead mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work continues on all floors.
- Concrete pours on the 5th and 6th floors are complete.
- Exterior precast panels are now being hung on the building exterior.
- More than 350 precast panels will be set.
- Some panels span two floors and weigh more than 20,000 pounds — as much as two elephants!
UI Health has committed to engaging minority-owned, woman-owned, and veteran-owned businesses throughout the project, with a goal of 30% of construction costs supporting these businesses. The new building and expanded clinical services will create an estimated 100+ full-time positions that are part of the UIC collective bargaining unit.
Support the Outpatient Surgery Center & Specialty Clinics
The Outpatient Surgery Center & Specialty Clinics will be home to the Bruno & Sallie Pasquinelli Outpatient Surgery Center, which will feature eight operating rooms and a 24-bay Pre-/Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). Located on the third floor of the OSC, the center will be connected to the main hospital by an enclosed bridge across West Taylor Street. The new space made possible by the creation of the UIC Pasquinelli Outpatient Surgery Fund.
