Rush's butterfly-shaped hospital set to open in 2012
Topped with a series of green roofs, Rush University Medical Center's $654 million, 830,000-sf new hospital building will be Chicago's first full-service green hospital upon its opening in January 2012. Designed by Perkins+Will, Chicago, the 14-story facility will house 304 acute- and critical-care beds, 72 neonatal intensive care beds, and 10 labor-delivery beds, all in private patient rooms, as well as 28 operating rooms and 14 procedure rooms. The building's butterfly configuration provides direct line of sight from nursing stations to patient rooms and maximizes daylight and views.
