American College of Chest Physicians / Headquarters and Training Center
Glenview, Illinois / United States of America
Changes in the healthcare environment and the practice of medicine are having a significant impact on the way healthcare providers are trained and taught — as well as for the buildings and spaces that support their education. The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) Headquarters and Training Center creates an identity for its 18,700 members in an employee-friendly, build-to-suit structure. Located within The Glen mixed-use development in Glenview, Illinois, the LEED Silver certified building combines 33,000 square feet of office space with 15,000 square feet of training facilities, and features six ICU simulation training rooms, six breakout seminar rooms, and a large auditorium. The two-story lobby and reception areas harness natural light to greet members and visitors, and leads to the state-of-the-art Innovation, Simulation and Training Center.
The Training Center offers ACCP members interactive, cutting-edge educational opportunities and performance assessment tools they can extend to their patient care services in hospitals, clinics, and doctor’s offices around the world. The Training Center provides four emergency care simulators, a METIman simulator to teach nursing and prehospital skills, and group breakout rooms for informal interactions. The ACCP Headquarters and Training Center is an incubator for new ideas that help propel healthcare research forward.
