FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CHICAGO (May 9, 2022) — HSA PrimeCare, the national healthcare real estate division of Chicago-based HSA Commercial Real Estate, today announced it has completed a 5,168-square-foot expansion of The University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center, located on the Silver Cross Hospital campus in New Lenox, Ill.
UChicago Medicine was looking to expand its medical oncology program, located on the second floor of the cancer center, and met with HSA PrimeCare, the developer and owner of the building, to outline its growth requirements. HSA PrimeCare evaluated an expansion to the existing building and also presented a potential expansion into a neighboring building that would be connected by a pedestrian bridge. Though complicated, the latter scenario proved to be more cost-effective.
“We’re proud to collaborate with UChicago Medicine to expand healthcare services for cancer patients in the region,” said John Wilson, president of HSA PrimeCare. “The expanded facility is yet another example of how academic medical centers are bringing specialty services such as cancer care into community health settings.”
Developed in 2012 by HSA PrimeCare, the property is fully leased to Silver Cross Hospital and UChicago Medicine, whose cancer center was the first modern oncology facility of its kind in Chicago’s south suburbs. To serve a higher volume of patients, 11 exam rooms, five physician offices and two research offices were added, and one suite was built out to accommodate additional exam rooms and treatment areas.
HSA PrimeCare first began working with Silver Cross Hospital in 2008, when the hospital chose the firm to develop and manage a two-story, 53,000-square-foot medical office building primarily occupied by Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago physician offices, Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health and Hinsdale Orthopedics. HSA PrimeCare was selected to develop the cancer center in 2011 and a subsequent expansion in 2014. Later that year, HSA PrimeCare also developed Silver Cross’ 30,000-square-foot business center to house offices, hospital support departments, EMS training and IT for the hospital.
Strategically located at the confluence of I-355 and I-80 in New Lenox, Silver Cross Hospital is the premier location for healthcare delivery to Chicago’s southwest suburbs. Eckenhoff Saunders served as the architect for the expansion, while PREMIER Design + Build served as general contractor.
