Oak Lawn, IL (PRWEB) February 25, 2008 –
Leopardo Construction, a leading construction services firm, recently completed a new expansion at Advocate Christ Medical Center that totals more than 90,000 square feet and over $30 million worth of work.
Located at 4440 W. 95th Street in Oak Lawn, the expansion integrated the existing hospital surgical department with the addition of five operating rooms, and the Adult Surgical Heart Unit with 20 new patient rooms. As one of the premier teaching institutions in the region, the expansion also featured a state-of-the-art, 245-seat clinical education auditorium and conference center.
The project also included a new testing laboratory, a central sterile department and physicians’ lounge. Simultaneously, Leopardo managed a multi-phase renovation to Advocate Christ Medical Center’s neonatal and prenatal intensive care units.
“This type of delicate, precise medical construction requires the work of trained and seasoned general contractors who understand the countless considerations and sensitivities when building and renovating large hospital facilities,” said Mike Leopardo, vice president of Leopardo’s Healthcare group. “We had numerous safety measures and procedures in place to ensure the cleanest air quality, minimal noise and vibration, and the safest work site possible.”
Leopardo served as general contractor with HDR as project architect. Over the last six years, the company has collaborated with Advocate Health Care on more than 30 projects.
