Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago is planning a 31,860-sq.-ft. outpatient facility in Skokie, village in neighboring Chicago’s northern border.
Located at 3722 W. Touhy Ave., the primary care and outpatient services center is estimated to cost a total of $27.5 million, Chicago Business reports, citing Lurie’s application with the Illinois Health Facilities & Services Review Board.
If approved by the state, the Skokie facility would include medical offices for pediatric primary and specialty care physicians, 23 exam rooms and diagnostic testing, including X-ray and ultrasound capabilities.
According to Lurie’s application, of the more than 31,000 total sq. ft., about 3,500 sq. ft. would be used as clinical space.
Construction is expected to begin in September, with completion by July 2021.
