Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago broke ground Apr. 23 on a new 75,000 square foot outpatient center at 1895 Arbor Glen Blvd in Schaumburg. The center will offer primary care, ancillary and diagnostic services, orthotics and prosthetics, laboratory and pharmacy services, as well as an ambulatory infusion center with the capacity to expand services.

The project team includes architect HKS, general contractor SkenderIMEG Corp. as the structural and mechanical engineers, and V3 Companies as the civil engineers. The project is expected to be complete in the summer of 2025 and see its first patient in August 2025.

“We are excited to expand our services in the northwest region, and especially to provide children and families the ability to receive infusions for cancer and other conditions in a convenient and highly accessible location,” said Thomas Shanley, MD, President & CEO of Lurie Children’s.

The new outpatient center will grow Lurie Children’s footprint in the northwest suburbs and serve as a replacement to the smaller locations at Arlington Heights, Hoffman Estates and Huntley.

In addition to the main hospital in downtown Chicago, Lurie Children’s offers 17 outpatient locations, six primary care sites and 10 partner hospitals throughout the Chicago area. In Fiscal Year 2023 (Sept. 1, 2022–Aug. 31, 2023), Lurie Children’s had more than 900,000 outpatient visits.
