Harley Ellis Devereaux and Walsh Construction have finalized the $80 million design-build renovation of Palos Health South Campus in Orland Park, Ill. The makeover was a five-year process consisting in adding modern technologies, incorporating a new, 83,000 square-foot Ambulatory Care Center, renovating 40,000 square feet of space in an existing building and constructing a new 316-car parking deck.
The master plan highlighted the need to unify the campus by organizing the clinics according to an academic health center model, which would enable better collaboration. The new building’s design preserves visual consistency, while the interiors feature biophilic elements such as wood and stone.
“The design for this Palos campus began with the idea that the facility should reflect its surrounding prairie setting and embody the natural environment contained within its bordering wetlands. It was imperative that natural elements be reinforced from the moment patients turned into the property and continued throughout their entire visit,” said HED Principal Aaron Shepard, in a prepared statement.
Services provided at the newly expanded medical campus include primary care, integrated surgical care, musculoskeletal and neuroscience treatment, and full oncology services and support. The new cancer program was launched in partnership with Loyola University.
