Oak Forest Health Center Outpatient Clinic

Cook County, Illinois

This project represents the first phase of renovation/construction related to the transformation of the New "E" Building at Oak Forest Health Center to a Regional Outpatient Clinic. Work includes demolition and reconstruction of approximately 15,500 SF of former administration and mail order pharmacy space on the ground floor to become Central Registration, Waiting, Laboratory and Diagnostic Imaging, with an overall focus on patient-centered services. The diagnostic imaging department will offer the following modalities: two general X-ray, chest X-ray, fluoroscopy, OB/GYN ultrasound, vascular ultrasound, CT scan, and mammography screening. New equipment is being provided throughout, all with PACS capabilities for coordination of digital imaging review among satellite locations within Cooks County's Health System. A new main entry plaza will also be constructed to extend the philosophy of patient-centered care and healing environments to the building's exterior.
