Cardiovascular Institute at Glenbrook Hospital
NorthShore has strategically selected the Glenbrook Hospital campus for its new phased cardiovascular Institute expansion. The development comprises 165,000 sf of new construction. The existing drop-off and entrance canopy will be replaced and expanded to serve the proposed additional program.
The first floor of the expansion includes 8 Cath Labs, 4 EP Labs, 4 Open-Heart Operating Rooms, 2 Hybrid Operating Rooms, Preparation/Recovery Bays, staff and clinical support, and a lobby area with a 24’ tall glass enclosure. In addition, a 5-story elevator core with two oversized patient elevators and two public elevators connects the expansion to each floor of the existing hospital. The materials of the addition’s exterior will match those of the existing hospital. To distinguish itself from the existing facility, this addition uses those materials as larger planes instead of the punched window aesthetic of the existing bed towers.
