Palos Health Announces Redevelopment of South Campus
Palos Health revealed plans for the redevelopment of its South Campus at 153rd and West Avenue in Orland Park. Once completed, the location will offer more advanced, expanded health care services to the surrounding community.
To meet the growing demand for outpatient care, the updated facility will include physician offices, as well as diagnostic and treatment areas for a variety of medical specialties. A total of $117 million will be invested, incorporating the latest in medical technology. Renovations will integrate new construction with renovation of existing structures, allowing Palos Health to continue to partner with local providers and other agencies to improve access to health care for area residents. Completion is planned for early 2018.
“Palos Health is excited to begin our South Campus expansion,” said Timothy Brosnan, vice president of Planning and Community Relations. “Once completed, the updated and enlarged facility will provide improved health care and a better overall experience for patients in the southwest suburbs.”
In early 2015, Palos Health and Loyola University Health System entered into an affiliation. This relationship provides patients greater access to Loyola’s renowned specialty care services, while ensuring continued access to Palos Health’s primary care network. Loyola opened the Center for Cancer Care and Research on the Palos South Campus in December 2015. The redevelopment of the Orland Park location will provide the opportunity for additional access to specialty care in the southwest suburbs.
