University of Chicago Medicine and Biological Sciences

In September, the University of Chicago Medicine will commemorate the beginning of construction of the new Emergency Department with a groundbreaking ceremony, signifying the start of the plan to expand much-needed health services on Chicago’s South Side. To be located on the first floor of the new Parking B structure, the new ED will provide more access to urgent care and, eventually, level 1 adult trauma services. The groundbreaking will give UChicago Medicine a wonderful opportunity to celebrate with many of the community members who helped win approval of the “Get CARE” expansion plans earlier this year.
