Construction has begun on the Edward A. Brennan Entry Pavilion, a three-story entranceway linking the new hospital building under construction at Rush University Medical Center with its existing hospital facilities.
When completed, the Edward A. Brennan Entry Pavilion will create a new “front door” to Rush’s hospital facilities.
The pavilion will be located on West Harrison Street, with the new hospital building that will open in 2012 to the east and the existing atrium hospital building to the west.
The project is a component of the Rush Transformation, the most comprehensive campus renovation project in the medical center’s 170-year history.
The pavilion is named in honor of Edward A. Brennan, chairman of Rush’s Board of Trustees for nearly 10 years until his death in 2007.
