The new 259,000 SF Bed Tower is part of the master facilities planning study of this 720,000 square foot flagship hospital. The addition and renovation creates 150 new private beds, updates and replaces 48 Intensive Care Beds, and provides additional nursing units. As the Design Architect, PFB - in a joint effort with HDR - guided this project through the approval process by the Center for Health Design Research as a “Pebble Project.” This makes this project the first “Pebble” concept in the State of Illinois to receive a “Certificate of Need” approval.
