Construction is nearing completion for the UI Health Welcome Atrium at 1740 W Taylor Street in the Illinois Medical District. Located directly across from UI Health’s new outpatient center, the two-story enclosure will attach to the main hospital building, providing a new lobby and wayfinding point for patients, visitors, and staff.
Directly across from the rapidly developing UI Health Outpatient Center, the new UI Health Welcome Atrium at 1740 W Taylor Street can also be seen making extensive progress in the Illinois Medical District. This new two-story glass-clad lobby attaches directly to the hospital’s main building, and has been designed with several purposes in mind. According to an overview on UI Health’s website, the new addition will “improve access, circulation, and wayfinding for patients, visitors, and staff,” while also strengthening brand and image for the hospital and creating a sense of comfort and security for visitors.
As facade work enters its final leg, glass installation is now underway for the University of Illinois’ new medical building in the Illinois Medical District. Known as the UI Health Outpatient Surgery Center & Specialty Clinics, the six-story facility will offer more than 200,000 square feet of programming.
