Mile Square Health Center Breaks Ground for New Facility
Groundbreaking Ceremony for new University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System Mile Square Health Center
The state-of-the-art facility will be dedicated to continuing to provide Mile Square’s quality health care to the people of Chicago.
Congressman Danny Davis and Alderman Robert Fioretti will join University of Illinois President Robert Easter, UIC Chancellor Paula Allen-Meares, UI Vice President for Health Affairs Dr. Joe G.N. “Skip” Garcia, and UI Vice President for Finance Walter Knorr at the ceremony.
10 – 11:30 a.m.
1220 S. Wood St.
The new 46,000 square foot facility will replace the current aging structure. The increased capacity will make it possible for Mile Square to be a medical home for twice as many families throughout the city of Chicago and suburbs, in addition to offering convenience care — same-day appointments and drop-in visits. Seventy-six thousand patient visits are anticipated in its first year, including individuals newly insured under health care reform.
