COOK COUNTY CENTRAL CAMPUS HEALTH CENTER
"It is a transformative centerpiece for system-wide operational and programmatic reform." - Toni Preckwinkle, Board President, Cook County
Teaming with Clayco as the developer and design-builder, Lamar Johnson Collaborative served as the Executive Architect responsible for the implementation and delivery of the new nine story, 282,000 SF Central Campus Health Center for Cook County Health and Hospital Systems. Lamar Johnson Collaborative led the integration and coordination of a multi-disciplinary team of architects and engineers throughout the design and construction phase of this transformational project.
The Center is being built to replace the aging Fantus Clinic and will connect new and expanded ambulatory services to the adjacent John H. Stroger In-Patient Hospital at multiple levels, improving patient and staff access. Once complete, the Center will provide state-of-the art Medical Oncology, Infusion, Dental, General Medicine, Oral Health, Dermatology, Ophthalmology and other specialty out-patient services. Additional components of the project include five levels of administrative and professional office space, new emergency drive and access road realignments, the demolition of the outdated Fantus Clinic and extensive site work including the relocation of the existing bulk oxygen tank farm.
