Glenbrook Hospital, a 173-bed member of the Northshore University Hospital system in suburban Chicago, has achieved in 20 years a total modernization and expansion of its diagnostic and treatment areas, as well as privatization of all its beds. The hospital has become more outpatient-focused with the new John and Carol Walter Ambulatory Care Center (ACC). Outpatients and staff now have clarity of entry at the opposite end of the hospital from inpatients and surgical procedure patients. The three level, 150,000 SF ACC connects to the hospital at the lower level for physician services (offices and conference space), staff, and infrastructure systems. The first floor links to all patient and public functions and amenities in the hospital. The ACC comprises the Kellogg Cancer Center, the Neurological Institute, the Urologic Center for Health, the Cardiovascular Institute, and physical therapy. While providing a fresh face to the campus, the interior has significant exposure to the outside with its atria-focused entry and waiting areas. The ACC is surrounded with lush landscaping, including the cancer center patient garden. The project has a LEED Silver rating.
