New Surgery Center Comes to Silver Cross

We are pleased to announce that our Healthcare team was selected to complete a 14,000 square foot ambulatory surgery center, a 20-acre site development and a 2,000 square foot addition of the C-section unit for Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, Illinois.

Silver Cross Hospital was established in 1895 under the promise to provide quality healthcare with compassion for the citizens of Will County and its surrounding communities. Today, their mission of providing quality healthcare continues to thrive across all three care centers. The addition of their new ambulatory surgery center will further strengthen their dedication to the community.

We were selected by Silver Cross Hospital to complete the project, which will include the new construction of an ambulatory surgery center. The surgery center’s interior will feature three operating rooms equipped for surgical procedures, specialized clean and soiled holding rooms, two nurse stations with pre-operative prep and post recovery areas that house a total of 11 patient holding bays, and one examination room. Additionally, Silver Cross’ staff will also benefit from the addition of two separate changing locker rooms and a large lounge and break room area.

Exterior elements will feature a decorative building façade which is designed to be covered in stone and brick with metal panel accents throughout and glass window features. Along with the building construction we will be handling a 20-acre site development which is being planned for future building expansion and other developments down the road. Most notably, the new development will include a retention pond to manage storm water runoff in order to prevent flooding and erosion and also a sanitary lift station which is forcing sanitary waste to a local tie in point at the main hospital- the complete run is over ½ mile in length. This addition will help aid to the improvement of water quality for the facility while adding to the overall aesthetics.

Construction of the surgery center and 20-acre site development will be led by Reed Construction’s Project Executive Scott Pickands. Joining him will be Senior Project Manager Joe Kozlowski, Project Engineer James Tang, and Project Superintendent Bob Marks. Architectural services are being provided by Burell Group.

While the new surgery center is underway, our Healthcare team is also constructing an additional 2,000 square foot C-section unit in Silver Cross’ main hospital. This project will warrant a complete demolition and reconstruction of an existing operating room. The new unit will feature custom stainless steel millwork and finishing elements along with state-of-the-art mechanical and medical gas systems to accommodate the operating room’s environmental and procedural requirements.

This undertaking will be led by Project Executive Scott Pickands, Senior Project Manager Joe Kozlowski, Project Engineer James Tang, and Project Superintendent Frank Cavanaugh. Reed Construction will be collaborating with architect company Anderson Mikos Architects, LTD.  Construction of all projects is slated for completion in August of 2017.
