Elmhurst’s new campus creates an atmosphere that cultivates the healing of the mind, body and spirit while encouraging patients to become actively involved in their own care. Patients and their families are placed at the heart of this integrated healthcare complex. This healing environment features all private rooms, a state-of-the-art emergency department, technologically advanced surgical suites, a range of specialty services, individual physician offices and a retail complex. All of these spaces are geared towards embracing new technologies, expanding community outreach and transforming the delivery of healthcare. A home-like appeal is provided through a number of features including overnight accommodations for patient family members, libraries, kitchens and activity rooms. Numerous courtyards, deliberate views to the exterior, green roofs and healing gardens allow a constant integration of nature within the facility.
The project included an out-patient women’s imaging center with calming, spa-like environments for providing mammography, ultrasound, core-biopsy and counseling services.
