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."

With a network of dedicated work spaces - the offstage areas - patients can be moved throughout the building with greater privacy while physicians and staff navigate their way through the building in corridors that are separate from visitors.

These same behind-the-scenes areas will also be used for transporting equipment, laundry, meals and supplies, ensuring the public areas remain focused on the public.

This site is part of the Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare network of Web sites, which covers a variety of topics using the same philosophy: When it comes to medical care, we know that you have a lot of options. And we want you to know that you're more than a patient to us. You're an individual. We would appreciate the opportunity to provide you with state-of-the-art medical care and down-to-earth, personalized attention.
