Building demolished for more parking, easier access

La Grange – A four-story, 50,000 square-foot professional office building on the Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital campus is being demolished this month to make room for more parking and easier hospital access for patients and visitors. The 36-year-old building housed physicians’ offices, which have since relocated to other spots in the area.

Nine parking spots reserved for the handicapped will be created, along with additional landscaping and benches. The hospital also will gain 320 spots previously reserved for visitors to the office building, bringing the total number of parking spots to 1,645 for the hospital and the existing medical office building.

The demolition was planned as a follow-up to the 2006 grand opening of the hospital’s $80 million Patient Care Center. The center, a 225,000-square-foot addition, created a new “front door” for the hospital; the demolition of the professional office building creates better access to that front door.

 

“Demolishing the professional office building gives the community a less obstructed view of our beautiful new facility,” said Ed Gervain, vice president/chief operating officer, Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital. “We hope our patients and visitors find the hospital to be a more aesthetically pleasing and inviting place.”
