Presence Saint Joseph Hospital Center for Advanced Care Grand Opening
| September 29, 2015
Chicago, Illinois, September 29, 2015 - Presence Saint Joseph Hospital and CBRE Healthcare are pleased to announce the Grand Opening of the Presence Center for Advanced Care (PCAC) in Chicago, Illinois.
The Presence Center for Advanced Care is another example of how Presence Health is transforming health care. The new modern, accessible ambulatory (outpatient) care facility offers a welcoming, easy-to-navigate setting to maximize patient care and comfort. The 9-story building is located on the Presence Saint Joseph Hospital campus at 2845 North Sheridan Road, Chicago and is a regional destination for Advanced Imaging, Women’s Imaging, Ambulatory Surgery, Digestive Health & Endoscopy, integrative medicine, physical therapy and rehab, and diabetes education and wellness. The PCAC is also home to the Presence Chicago Institute of Advanced Bariatrics, The Center for Orthopedic and Specialty Care, the Mark M. Connolly Center for Cancer Care and the Zaccone Center for Holistic Healing. The center is connected to the main hospital via a skybridge and the upper floors feature private medical and physician space.
“We took an innovative team approach to create this space,” said Presence Saint Joseph Hospital President & CEO, Roberta Luskin-Hawk, MD. “We partnered with our patients and physicians to create a facility that addresses the health needs of our community now and well into the future. The strong working relationships with RTKL as architects, CBRE as project manager, Powers Construction and Hammes for building management, enabled us to deliver great results for the community.”
Presence Health owns the land, but does not own the building. These partnerships allowed for better control of capital expenditures, and allowed for the savings to be poured back into better equipment, technology, treatments and people. All of this allows Presence to provide an excellent patient experience.
The PCAC is also a hub for the community; the new facility has a Walgreens (which will deliver medications to patient beds, just before discharge) a coffee bar, community meeting spaces on the 5th floor where people can meet and discuss the important issues in this community.
“Patients and insurers are also looking for hospitals to deliver more coordinated care, which reduces costs for both patients and insurers, but also provides a better experience for the patient,” stated Luskin-Hawk. “We can now offer a wider array of services, new technologies and integrative care in one location. Physicians are also thrilled because they can now see patients in both an outpatient and inpatient setting without traveling between clinics, nursing units and medical groups.”
“Partnering with Presence Health on the PCAC project has been a rewarding and fulfilling experience,” stated Julie Ford, CBRE Director of Project Management. “It has been an honor to assist Presence in achieving their vision to be a leader in transforming health care by delivering clinical excellence, outstanding value and exceptional experience to achieve better health to their communities. The new PCAC will certainly deliver on that promise.”
CBRE provided Presence Health Project Management Services that included: Facilities Planning Committee Organization; Project Work Review and Validation; Master Program Schedule and Budget Development and Maintenance; CON Submission; Project Delivery Team Selection; Agreement Development; Project Staffing Plan and Project Implementation Plan Development; Owner-Furnished Vendor Management; Activation Services and Move Management oversight.
