LITTLE COMPANY OF MARY HOSPITAL AND HEALTHCARE CENTER
Evergreen Park, Illinois
We have been involved with master planning at Little Company of Mary Hospital since 1988, with the latest reorganizational and major addition master planning completed in May 2007.
The key drivers for this latest master plan were a new Women's Center location, an inpatient bed shortage, and a need for parking. We explored outpatient, inpatient, and Community Opportunities, campus growth and addition scenarios, and Expansion Zones for Future Growth. It included renovations and expansions, an inpatient bed analysis, and a parking study.
The decision matrix incorporated Cost and Timeframes Design / Construction. One option was to build a new bed building with the new Women's Center on the Ground Level and to eventually tear down the original 1920s bed tower, as depicted in the massing study to the far right.
