The $194 million Outpatient Surgery Center and Specialty Clinics building will provide expanded space for the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System, or UI Health, to serve patients needing GI, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, transplant and urology services.
The building will include six floors of patient care space, including eight operating and eight procedure rooms, 48 pre- and post-surgery bays, clinic space for GI, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, transplant and urology clinics and a pharmacy.
Under the public-private partnership between UIC and Provident Resources Group, a 501(c)(3) corporation, Provident will finance nearly three-quarters of the cost of the building through tax-exempt bonds and lease the facility to UI Health during the 30-year term of the bonds. Additional funding will come from the health system and private philanthropy.
Completion of the project is expected in 2022.
