Rush, Midwest Orthopaedics expand in Oak Brook
Rush University Medical Center and Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush said Tuesday they are expanding access to health care with a new multi-million-dollar professional building and surgery center in Oak Brook.
The project was approved on Tuesday by the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board, paving the way for a three-story professional building that will feature a multi-specialty outpatient surgery center.
Construction is expected to begin in the spring and could take two years.
"We want to make it as convenient as possible for people living and working in the Western suburbs to receive the most coordinated, advanced health care from their Rush providers," said Michael Dandorph, president of Rush University Medical Center.
The 100,000-square-foot professional building, to be located at 2011 York Road in Oak Brook, will house an outpatient surgery center, offices for Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush and offices for other faculty physicians from Rush University Medical Center. Additionally, the building will include imaging and laboratory services.
The project is a joint venture between Rush and Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush. The total cost of the new building is estimated to be about $65 million. The state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center is estimated to cost $21 million. An attached parking deck is part of the plan.
While providing access to other Rush surgical and clinical specialties, the Oak Brook facility will be centered on orthopedic care, for which Rush has consistently been ranked among the top providers in the country.
