Comer Children's Hospital, University of Chicago Hospitals
The new Comer Children’s Hospital at the University of Chicago Medical Center provides an ultra-modern yet child-friendly setting for all inpatient children’s health services. Many of the unusual components are the result of input from the Kids’ Advisory Board, a group of current and former patients who provided the design team with the child’s perspective on a hospital stay.
The building, completed in June 2005, is a 242,000 sq. ft., 155-bed, 7-story facility that will more than double the size of the existing facility one block away. The project was made possible, in part, by a gift of $21 million from Gary C. and Frances Comer. Mr. Comer founded Lands’ End.
VDA provided full consulting services through construction administration for two (2) in-ground hydraulic service elevators one (1) geared traction service elevator, and five (5) geared traction passenger elevators.
