The University of Chicago Medical Center’s New Hospital Pavilion will be a 21st-century technological and architectural tour de force, designed to accelerate medical progress and to leverage the close collaboration between the university’s world-class clinicians and researchers for the benefit of patients.
The futuristic 10-story, 1.2-million-sq-ft hospital pavilion, designed by renowned architect Rafael Viñoly, provides a high-technology facility that combines the optimal setting for patient care and collaborative clinical research with the flexibility to adapt to and drive forward rapid changes sweeping through medicine.
The pavilion will provide a new home for the University of Chicago Medical Center’s clinical programs, those that provide complex specialty care with a focus on cancer, gastrointestinal disease, neuroscience, advanced surgery and high-technology medical imaging.
Engineered to link the forefront of medicine with the university’s agenda-setting science, and to provide the most innovative care for patients facing the most challenging illnesses, the new hospital pavilion will serve as the new “core” of the campus.
It will be adjacent to two new research facilities: the 430,000-sq-ft Gordon Center for Integrative Science and the 330,000-sq-ft, 12-story Knapp Center for Biomedical Discovery.
