PARK RIDGE, IL—Advocate Children’s Hospital at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital’s Physical Plant Upgrade is preparing to enter the final phase of its renovation. The multi-level project includes renovations to 19,565 SF of their hospital. On the ﬁrst ﬂoor, upgrades are being made to the ﬁnishes in the Pediatric Emergency Department. The Pediatric Inpatient ﬂoor renovation and refreshed ﬁnishes will help create a cohesive aesthetic with the hospital’s new emergency department addition and bed tower. Lastly, the ﬁfth ﬂoor of the hospital is undergoing ﬁnishes upgrades to its patient rooms, dayroom, classroom, exam and intake areas, and a separation between inpatient and outpatient areas is being created. In addition to making the aesthetic cohesive with the hospital’s other units, the ﬁfth ﬂoor renovations will increase patient safety and clinical efficiency.
