Window installation is now wrapping up for the new Rush Specialty Hospital at 516 S Loomis Street in Little Italy, part of the Rush University Medical Campus expansion. This new facility, currently under construction, will offer 135,000 square feet of new space and house 100 beds dedicated to acute, rehabilitation, and long-term care. The hospital will be located just east of the Joan and Paul Rubschlager building, which is currently under construction on its parking garage. The new building will be adjacent to an empty lot that could potentially house up to 855,000 square feet of programming in the future.
