Creating a 'building in a garden'

Landscaping throughout the new campus will include a variety of gardens that vary in size and purpose from small, intimate areas to large walking paths.

The future of surgery at EMH

Keeping up with the ever-changing advances in technology requires the planning process to go beyond pencil and paper. To see how everything comes together, we have to sometimes take it a step further.

Going inside the new Hospital

As work to create the structure for the new Elmhurst Memorial Hospital continues, members of the project team are busy finalizing details of the interior portions of the building, including real examples of patient care areas.

More than just steel work

While the rise of steel is the most visible sign of progress on the construction site, a number of other activities are occurring to keep the project on schedule.

Celebrating progress

With steel work now about 40 percent complete, some areas of the new Hospital are becoming clearly recognizable. In spring, we will be turning our attention to commemorating another milestone in this historic project with a topping off ceremony.
