The new Children's Memorial Hospital

Yet another update on the new Children’s Memorial Hospital (225 East Chicago Avenue)going up in the Gold Coast.  Though there’s much glazing work to be done, the main parts of the facade are mostly in place.  For the last few weekends, there have been early-morning shipments of large pieces of truck-sized equipment whose labels, to a layman like myself, appear destined for the emergency room or ICU.
