Cook County Health has broken ground for a new $12 million health center in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood.
Construction for the new 25,000 sq. ft. building at 5501 W. Fullerton is expected to begin later this year and will be completed in 2020.
Dubbed the Hanson Park Health Center, the facility will feature 30 exam rooms and will provide pediatric and adult primary care, women’s health, dental care as well as specialty services like cardiology and endocrinology.
The new health center will replace the Logan Square Health Center at 2840 W. Fullerton. Cook County Health officials estimate that the site will accommodate more than 50,000 visits annually.
“The new health center will provide our patients modern, welcoming space, reflective of the high-quality care they receive,” Cook County Health CEO Dr. Jay Shannon said in a statement. “With this project we are coming closer to realizing our future as a modern, integrated and culturally sensitive and person-centered health system. Our patients deserve no less.”
Over the course of the next year, Cook County Health plans to open new facilities in North Riverside and Blue Island.
