Chicago-based Presence Health, now part of AMITA Health, identified the need for expanded geriatric medical services to better serve the growing senior population in the Southwest Chicago suburbs. With a geriatric specialty group already in the area, Presence wanted to consolidate existing practices into a single, conveniently located facility dedicated to delivering an exceptional healthcare experience for seniors. While Presence owned land that would serve as an ideal location for the new facility, it did not have the capital to finance the project independently.
In addition, during the planning phase of the project, Presence found that its vision for the new facility was not consistent with the available budget.
Hammes provided a complete turnkey development solution for the new "Healing Arts Pavilion." Hammes worked closely with Presence and a new architectural partner to find a design that could accommodate the goals and vision for the new facility while staying within budget constraints.
The Healing Arts Pavilion facility feels warm and inviting with a three-story glass curtain wall tower with a large porte-cochere at the main entry, a hotel-like concierge entry and gathering space with a fireplace and café, as well as high-end finishes throughout. The site includes radiant heated sidewalks and extensive site lighting.
The facility features 26 exam and procedure rooms, labs and private offices with a mix of primary and specialty physicians catering to the senior population.
With the new Healing Arts Pavilion, Presence achieved its goal of providing an unparalleled patient experience for seniors, their caregivers and families in a comfortable, clubhouse-like atmosphere.
