Intelligent Medicine By Design

Keep an eye out for our new ads that are now appearing in local newspapers.

Topping off the MOB

The final steel beam is now place on the medical office building on the west side of the New Main Campus.

The final stretch

Today marks 100 days until the opening of the new EMH.

Construction is nearing an end

We recently received our temporary certificate of occupancy for the New Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, signifying that the construction process is coming to an end.

The idea behind "onstage and offstage"

The layout of the new Hospital is designed for maximum efficiency, using a common-sense approach that we call "onstage and offstage."

Inpatient units with a neighborhood feel

All of our inpatient suites will be grouped into 12-bed "neighborhoods" that keep caregivers close to their patients and the supplies and equipment they need.

A private room in the Emergency Department?

We're replacing the conventional curtain-separated bays with individual rooms, each with its own restroom and an adjacent family waiting area.

Not just private rooms...identical private rooms

The new EMH will include all private inpatient suites. Beyond that, they will all be the same, instead of mirro images of each other, which increases safety and efficiency.

200 days and counting

June 25, 2011 - the opening date for the new Elmhurst Memorial Hospital - is just 200 days away.

Construction begins on medical office building

Construction begins on medical office building located on the west side of the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital New Main Campus.
