Orland Park and Palos Community Hospital Reach Tentative Understanding to Preserve Fitness Center

The Village of Orland Park and St George Corporation, parent of Palos Community Hospital, have drafted a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that would preserve the Palos Health & Fitness Center and warm water pool located at 15300 West Ave in Orland Park.

Mayor Dan McLaughlin and representatives from the Village have been working for weeks with Palos Community Hospital to reach a collaborative arrangement that would allow the proposed $100M healthcare development to move forward, while preserving the Fitness Center.

"It has taken considerable time and effort to reach this MOU," McLaughlin said. "Because as with any project of this magnitude, proposed reconfigurations and new structural designs always include new legal, regulatory, construction and finance issues that must be addressed, negotiated and resolved."

"While we are still working out details to finalize a specific plan," McLaughlin continued, "I am greatly encouraged that the cooperation between Palos Community Hospital and the Village to date is going to manifest itself in a ‘win-win’ for all parties involved – especially those residents who have come to rely on the fitness center to help improve the quality of their lives."

Dr. Terrence Moisan, CEO of Palos Community Hospital, agreed. "We appreciate the Mayor’s lead and interest in preserving the fitness center, while helping us move forward with our very important investment in Orland Park. Ultimately, this project is about fulfilling our commitment to bringing state-of-the-art healthcare to the community we have been proud to be part of for more than 30 years."
