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.

Support the Specialty Care Building  

The Specialty Care Building 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 SCB, 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.
