HSA PrimeCare Breaks Ground on 40,000 SF Medical Office Building on Silver Cross Hospital Campus in New Lenox, Ill.


HSA PrimeCare broke ground on a 40,000-square-foot medical office pavilion on Silver Cross Hospital’s campus in New Lenox, Ill., immediately west of the I-355/I-80 interchange. Scheduled for completion in December 2019, the state-of-the-art facility will house the hospital’s urgent care, occupational health and primary care clinics, among other medical tenants, and will be situated on the west side of campus on Silver Cross Boulevard, just south of the new Silver Oaks Behavioral Health Hospital.

“Silver Cross is very excited to offer urgent-care services on the hospital campus as a faster, easier alternative to the emergency room for the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses,” said Molly Brusca, administrative director of physician relations at Silver Cross Hospital.

Silver Cross Urgent Care will offer patients prompt care and treat myriad conditions — from the common cold and flu to infections, minor burns and allergic reactions. Patients will be treated by a licensed clinical practitioner and will enjoy convenient hours and easy access to other on-campus medical services. Housed in the same building, Silver Cross’ occupational health and primary care clinics will provide additional healthcare services.

“We are pleased to once again assist Silver Cross Hospital with the continued expansion of its hospital campus,” said John Wilson, president of HSA PrimeCare. “With the existing buildings approaching full capacity, it’s the ideal time to develop yet another cutting-edge facility that will give additional healthcare providers the opportunity to establish a presence on campus.”

HSA PrimeCare has a longstanding partnership with Silver Cross Hospital dating back to 2008, when the hospital first chose the firm to develop and manage the two-story, 53,000-square-foot medical office building primarily occupied by Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago physician offices, Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health, and Hinsdale Orthopedics. The hospital again selected HSA PrimeCare to develop the state-of-the-art University of Chicago Cancer Center at Silver Cross Hospital operated by Silver Cross Hospital and University of Chicago Medicine in 2011 and to expand the facility to 21,000 square feet in 2014. That year, the firm also developed Silver Cross’ 30,000-square-foot business center to house offices, hospital support departments, EMS training and IT for the hospital.

Strategically located at the confluence of I-355 and I-80 in growing New Lenox, Silver Cross Hospital is the premier location for healthcare delivery to Chicago’s southwest suburbs. Eppstein Uhen Architects is the architect for the new project, while PREMIER Design + Build is serving as general contractor.

HSA PrimeCare SVP Jon Boley Shares the Top 3 Ways Medical Office Buildings Are Adapting to Changing Consumer Behaviors in Healthcare Business Today

Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Drexel Town Square Health Center, Oak Creek, Wisc.

In an article published this week by Healthcare Business Today, HSA PrimeCare SVP of acquisitions and development Jon Boley discusses three ways medical office buildings are adapting to changing consumer habits.

The change from fee-for-service to a value-based reimbursement model has driven healthcare providers to bring services closer to their patients. According to Boley, “travel time is three times more important than doctor quality” for Generation X consumers. As a result, healthcare providers are seeking retail locations with flexible layouts and ample parking.

Another trend among healthcare providers is a 360-degree approach to wellness. “[Patients] want to incorporate fitness in a seamless way, and medical providers want to tap into that trend as their industry becomes increasingly consumerized and, as a result, competitive,” Boley explains. For example, HSA PrimeCare’s recent development, the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Drexel Town Square Health Center is adjacent to public walking paths for patients and employees to enjoy.

Boley further describes the importance of building flexibility into design. “Going forward, as technological advancements continue and potential policy shifts impact where and how services are delivered, providers must expect — and prepare for — the unexpected,” Boley says. “Doing so will help them maintain their fiscal health while promoting the physical health of their patients.”
