Leopardo Completes Ambulatory Healthcare Facility for University of Chicago Medicine
Leopardo recently completed the University of Chicago Medicine Center for Advanced Care at Orland Park. Located at 143rd Street and LaGrange Road, the ambulatory healthcare facility is currently the University of Chicago Medicine’s largest off-campus location. The center and its services are helping meet the growing healthcare demand of the 120,000 University of Chicago Medicine patients in the southwest suburbs.
The project includes a four-story multi-use building with 80 exam rooms, 26 infusion bays and pharmacy. It provides services in radiation oncology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, cardiology, women’s health and surgical consulting.
A linear accelerator with concrete vault to block radiation, MRI room with radio frequency and magnetic shielding, as well as spaces equipped for CT enterography (CTE), ultrasound and X-ray were additional project components.
The project was a joint-venture between Leopardo and The Bowa Group, in collaboration with Cambridge, Massachusetts-based architect Tsoi/Kobus & Associates. The center officially opened for business on Dec. 12.
