University of Chicago Unveils The Center for Care and Discovery

Designed by award-winning architect Rafael Viñoly, the $700 million Center for Care and Discovery will start welcoming patients in February 2013.

This article is sponsored by The University of Chicago Medicine, one of the nation's top academic medical centers that is also consistently recognized as a leading provider of complex medical care. To learn more about The University of Chicago Medicine, visit www.uchospitals.edu.

 
The Center for Care and Discovery, a $700 million, 10-story facility that combines leading-edge technology and innovative research with expert patient care and an emphasis on comfort, will open its doors in February 2013. 
 
Located on the University of Chicago Medicine campus, the Center for Care and Discovery will create a core in which the school's world-class physician-researchers can focus on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Home to the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technology and designed to encourage collaboration and the development of new therapies, the Center will enhance the institution’s history of innovation, from development of novel cancer treatments to pioneers in minimally-invasive surgery to advances in medical imaging—all combined with a strong emphasis on compassion and careful communication.
 
The 1.2 million-square-foot Center for Care and Discovery will do more than set the standard for medical care. With 240 single-occupancy inpatient rooms—each private and spacious enough to accommodate families for overnight stays—it puts patients at the center. Comforts include more space for families and friends; stunning views of the University of Chicago campus, Washington Park, Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline; large flat-screen TVs, window treatments that give patients control, and a unique focus on noise reduction—creating a quiet place to heal. Indeed, the sprawling facility—designed by award-winning architect Rafael Viñoly—will have it all. 
 
But don't to take our word for it. Come celebrate the Center for Care and Discovery at an open house on Saturday, December 8. Guests will enjoy free tours, wellness screenings, discounts from Hyde Park restaurants and shops and the chance to win tickets to "The Steve Harvey Show." RSVP here or by calling: 855-655-2627.
