On July first, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital will temporarily close its main hospital entrance and lobby for the next 18 months as construction continues inside the hospital. Crews will be starting new phases of the hospital’s campus modernization project that will impact the flow of patients and visitors.
Part of the modernization project includes a complete renovation of the main hospital entrance and lobby. The project’s goal is to improve the patient care experience by enhancing privacy, offering the most advanced technology and making it more convenient to access inpatient and outpatient services. The renovation will allow patients direct access, through the main hospital entrance, to key outpatient testing and diagnostic services as well as the Breast Care Center.
Know Before You Go
During the campus modernization, all hospital services and departments will remain open and fully functional, but patients will be directed to use different hospital entrances for various procedures.
So, before you head to Good Shepherd, be sure to check the hospital’s modernization project website which will detail the latest updates about which entrances to use for what services.
