Advocate Christ Outpatient Pavilion

Oak Lawn, Illinois / United States of America

The Outpatient Pavilion at Advocate Christ Medical Center, one of Chicago’s largest medical centers, is the new 325,000-square-foot home for ambulatory care. The nine-story building brings together several specialties including pediatric, cancer, cardiac, bone and joint, and neuroscience, providing a centralized home for coordinated, multidisciplinary outpatient services in a collaborative setting for staff.

Located on the south side of the campus fronting 95th Street, the Outpatient Pavilion is the first major construction project of a new campus master plan, serving as a catalyst for a campus in need of revitalization and becoming a new “gateway” for it. The Outpatient Pavilion also sets a high standard for sustainability having achieved LEED Gold certification.

Tectonically, the building is comprised of three volumes clad in precast concrete, metal panels, and high-performance reflective glazing. The massing and materiality recalls the dominant materials of the existing campus while the new composition of materials sets the stage for a new architectural language on the campus. Inside, materials including terrazzo, natural stone and wood create a healing environment and an atmosphere that is warm and inviting.
