Status Update: Children’s Memorial Hospital

Children's Memorial Hospital

From most angles, the new Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Memorial Hospital (225 East Chicago Avenue) appears done, but there is still much work to be done. The facade was officially completed in February, but the ground floor remains hidden behind a wall of blue-painted plywood.

The public portions of the building are expected to be completed later this month, along with the new sidewalk planters, traffic signals, and pavement.

The official opening of the hospital is scheduled for June, 2012.
