Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital Hunter Family Center for Women’s Health

Lake Forest, IL

The 115,000 SF project included a three-story addition to the existing hospital for new exam rooms, new classrooms and educational areas, new labor and delivery rooms, new patient rooms, new nursery rooms, pre-/post-op rooms and two new C-section operating rooms.

The floor to floor elevations of the new addition were required to meet those of the existing hospital, which required extensive design and coordination to install all of the mechanical systems above the ceilings without compromising the overall aesthetics of the interior and exterior design intent.  The renovation, performed in multiple phases, involved 43,000 SF at various locations throughout the existing hospital.

All work was performed while maintaining full operation of critical areas of the hospital.
