On Thursday, September 22nd, Little Company of Mary broke ground on the Outpatient Care Center, located at 6700 West 95th Street in Oak Lawn.
The 51,000 square-foot, three-story facility will include the southwest area’s first nationally certified immediate care center, physician offices, lab and a state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging suite complete with MRI, CT, ultrasound, radiology and mammography. The building also features a two-level open lobby.
“For more than 80 years, Little Company of Mary has had the privilege of providing healthcare to Chicago’s southwest community,” says Dennis Reilly, President and CEO of Little Company of Mary Hospital. “We originally expanded our outpatient services to Oak Lawn in 1984 and we look forward to increasing these efforts with a dedicated Outpatient Care Center, scheduled to open in summer 2012. The Center will be the new home to our nationally certified immediate care center, The Care Station, as well as state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging technology and experienced physicians that our patients have grown to trust.”
Reilly referenced the national accreditation the current center recently received by the Urgent Care Association of America. It certified that the clinic provides patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions. Additionally, it met all of the established criteria set forth by the Association’s requirements.
The new facility will provide 172 parking spaces for patients and is anticipated to complete in summer 2012.
