Lurie Children’s seeks state approval for primary care and outpatient services center in Skokie
Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago plans to build a $27.5 million primary care and outpatient services center in Skokie.
The application for the proposed 31,860-square-foot facility was filed late last week with the Health Facilities and Services Review Board, which is expected to take up the plan at its June 4 meeting.
The center will include medical offices, 23 exam rooms and some diagnostic testing and support services. Construction is slated to start in September and wrap up by July 2021.
“Combining primary and specialty care, as well as diagnostic testing, in a single state-of-the-art facility close to the children we serve would allow us to deliver the right care at the right time and in the right place,” said Patrick Magoon, CEO of Lurie Children’s.
