CHICAGO and ORLAND PARK, Ill., Jan. 11, 2023 – A partnership of Chicago-based healthcare real estate developer Remedy Medical Properties and two leading Illinois-based healthcare providers, Silver Cross Hospital and Premier Suburban Medical Group (PSMG), broke ground Nov. 14 for the new Orland Park Medical Building.
Located in the southern Chicago suburb of Orland Park, the two-story, 42,000-square-foot facility is slated for completion in early 2024.
“We are very excited to begin developing a new medical facility for two highly experienced and well-respected healthcare providers that have been serving residents in the Chicago area for many years,” says Peter Westmeyer, Remedy’s Founder. “The new Orland Park Medical Building will provide area residents with greater accessibility to top-notch medical services.”
David Martin, Executive Vice President of Development with Remedy, adds, “Silver Cross Hospital has earned numerous national distinctions for exceptional patient safety, experience and outcomes and has partnered with Chicago’s leading academic medical centers to bring the very latest care to the community. Premier Suburban Medical Group has been providing a wealth of medical services and specialties to local residents for decades. We are pleased to work with these two organizations to build this facility.”
Ruth Colby, President and Chief Executive Officer of Silver Cross Hospital, says her organization first formed a partnership with PSMG (formerly Pronger Smith Medical Care) in 2020.
“At Silver Cross we’re always advancing and finding ways to better serve our communities,” Colby said. “We’re thrilled to partner with PSMG on this beautiful new facility that will bring needed healthcare services and physician offices to the residents of Orland Park and surrounding areas.”
Located on the northeast corner of 171st Street and LaGrange Road, Orland Park Medical Building will house 12 primary care physicians and a wide range of specialty care practices. This includes gastroenterologists, general surgeons, obstetrics/gynecologists, and a cardiologist, endocrinologist, hematologist/oncologist and orthopedic surgeon. In addition, it will feature comprehensive outpatient imaging services, a 21-station infusion center, an endoscopy suite with two procedure rooms and after-hours care.
In addition to Remedy, the other experienced members of the project team are Jensen & Halstead architects and general contractor Leopardo Companies, both based in Chicago.
