Loyola Medicine, a Chicago, Illinois metro medical group, has just opened a new, 30,000-square-foot regional clinical laboratory facility to serve Loyola University Medical Center, its academic medical center and two community hospitals, Gottlieb Memorial Hospital and MacNeal Hospital.
Designed to consolidate several smaller lab spaces across the three-facility system, and to significantly improve workflows and inventory control, the new laboratory is housed on the system’s Maywood campus of Loyola University Medical Center. The laboratory was planned and designed by HED and built by Leopardo Construction.
Newly located on the fourth and fifth floors of the campus’ existing Emergency Medical Services building, the new lab features great daylight access in the open concept lab space. Administrative functions are also located adjacent to the open lab, providing efficiency in specimen processing. The lab also features several major, new automated equipment systems and was designed with these upgrades in mind.
