About the New Central Campus Health Center:

The Cook County Health & Hospitals System’s goal is to help its patients get well and stay healthy. The health system provides preventive, primary and outpatient specialty care services to those it serves in the communities where they live, and works to reduce the prevalence of serious chronic conditions and the need for hospital care. To expand our services and improve the patient experience, CCHHS and Cook County are building a new health center on its Central Campus.

Each year, CCHHS cares for 300,000 unique patients recording nearly one million outpatient clinic visits; more than half of those visits take place on the health system’s Central Campus in the Illinois Medical District. The new Central Campus Health Center will be a state-of-the-art facility where patients can receive a wide array of outpatient health services. The modern, inviting building will be reflective of CCHHS’ world-class, patient-centered care. Services in the new health center will include:

  • Dental
  • Ophthalmology
  • Oncology
  • Infusion Center
  • General Medicine
  • Dermatology
  • Diabetes/Endocrine

The health center, located on the corner of Damen Avenue and Polk Street in Chicago, will be 9-stories with 280,000 square feet of space, including 4 floors of new clinical space.

Once construction is complete in 2018, the Central Campus Health Center will allow the health system to decommission the old, dilapidated Fantus Health Center, as well as the outdated Administration and Hektoen buildings. Together, these buildings require $128 million in deferred maintenance.

The Central Campus Health Center represents a milestone in CCHHS’ future as a modern, integrated health system. Additional investments are planned to create a new women and children’s center at Stroger Hospital in 2017, and for new and renovated health centers in communities across the County in the years to come. This commitment to outpatient and specialty care and community wellness will improve the health of CCHHS patients, reduce unnecessary health care costs and provide the greatest benefit to the whole of Cook County.
