Research hospital in Chicago looks to the future of rehabilitation

August 17, 2011 |

HDR Architecture and Gensler have joined to design the new Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago Research Hospital. Modern biomedical science implemented into a clinical environment will help bolster patient recovery, launching the world-class institute into a new rehabilitation paradigm.

Conceptual planning calls for the hospital to expand capacity to admit more patients and to open the world’s first Ability Lab, a new approach in helping patients recover from strokes, neurological disorders, and traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. Incorporating the institute’s leading research and clinical activities directly in a patient care setting, doctors and therapists will be able to maximize treatment with a focus on advanced patient ability.
