The majestic old Cook County Hospital building will have its facade preserved.

On Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014, Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC) presented our proposal for reimagining the Old Cook County Hospital campus, along I-290, at the Ill. Medical District Blue Line stop.

Cook County was looking to preserve the historic building's ornate facade. MPC's proposal celebrates and captures the beauty of the original hospital while also creating an Epicenter for the Ill. Medical District and the City of Chicago. The proposal would reflect the urbanity and vitality of the city where medical students, researchers, workers, and residents gather to innovate, interact, reside, work, live and heal.
