Northwestern Medicine has announced its plans for a new outpatient center in Bronzeville. Planned for the 4800 block of S. Cottage Grove Ave, the concept was originally proposed back in August 2021.
Conceived as a new 120,000-square-foot advanced outpatient care center, the new healthcare offering will offer patients numerous offerings, including an Immediate Care Center to provide urgent care, primary and specialty care by Northwestern Medicine physicians, pharmacy services, diagnostic services including mammograms and lab tests, a cancer center with chemotherapy services, and resources and programming for individual and community health.
With a design from Brook Architecture and Lamar Johnson Collaborative, the new building is expected to stand approximately five stories, including ground floor retail space at the corner and parking included within the building.
The center is expected to serve more than 50,000 patients and family members from Bronzeville and nearby communities every year. Approximately 1,000 construction and 100 healthcare and related jobs will be created.
Subject to regulatory approval, construction could begin in summer 2023 with a scheduled opening in summer 2025.
