Priority themes in the development of the community include: preserving the City’s historic core and its 1,000-year old architectural legacy; the projected growth of the City from its current population of over six million to more than 10 million inhabitants by 2030; and the need to channel the expected growth into several satellite cities linked by new transit systems connecting each to the historic City core.
*RTKL designed and master planned the replacement hospital for Silver Cross Hospital in Joliet, IL. The 560,000 sq. ft., $400 million, all-private room facility focuses on patient-centric care. The shape will maximize caregivers’ ability to provide patient-centric care and the design will facilitate future growth via a flexible operational model that will allow the hospital to expand easily as care needs increase. In the future, all patient rooms can be converted into ICU-capable rooms, and the hospital will be able to adapt full electronic charting more easily because of the technology infrastructure included in this phase. Completion is anticipated in the fall of 2011.
