New Healthcare Pavilion Scheduled For Elmhurst
Elmhurst Hospital Center’s new Women’s Healthcare Services Pavilion, which is scheduled to open in Spring 2013, will be located on the south side of 41st Avenue between 78th and 79th Streets, adjacent to the hospital’s main building in Elmhurst. The state-of-the-art facility will house a variety of women’s health services, including gynecology, gynecological surgery, colposcopy, pregnancy and HIV testing and counseling, prenatal care, high-risk pregnancy monitoring, and ante partum fetal testing. It will also house a number of support programs, including those offering classes in breastfeeding, childbirth, nutrition and diabetes education. In keeping with the city’s efforts to improve energy efficiency in public buildings, the Pavilion is being planned to meet the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards for environmentally sustainable construction. The building’s design is women-friendly and includes a glass façade to allow maximum natural light and space for children to play while their mothers wait to be seen in the clinics.
