The Inpatient Tower at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern), located in Zion, IL, won the 2015 Project of the Year Award for New Construction-Suburbs (above $20M) from CISCO (Construction Industry Service Corporation). The award is based on the project’s design, quality of construction, safety record, and impact on the surrounding community. Riley Construction is proud to have been the Construction Manager of this important project.
Designed with the input of patients and caregivers, the six-story inpatient tower has 72 spacious single-occupancy rooms that provide patients with the comforts of home, such as room for family and friends to join them, large flat screen televisions and oversized washroom facilities. The rooms are also equipped with all of the medical equipment and connections that are necessary for immediate patient care; however, they are purposefully kept out of sight behind custom sliding panels located behind the patient’s bed to promote a less hospital-like setting.
The inpatient tower also incorporates 48 guest quarter rooms on floors five and six, which are scheduled to open in June 2016. The rooms, which are hotel-like accommodations for outpatients and family members/caregivers, allow patients to be close to their care and others to be close to their loved ones while they are at CTCA at Midwestern for treatment. Amenities include tranquil family lounges, a spacious outdoor courtyard and garden, a large bistro & dining room, a state-of-the-art culinary demonstration kitchen where patients and caregivers learn healthy cooking strategies, and a 943-car parking structure adjacent to the tower for easy parking-access. Overall, the tower was designed with the patient’s utmost comfort and care in mind, while delivering quality, personalized care in a convenient and peaceful setting and enhanced patient safety through standardization and infection prevention.
