Advocate Health Care, Advocate Sherman Hospital
Elgin, IL | 2009
Sherman Hospital is positioned to evolve as one of the nation’s leading community hospitals and a model for sustainable design and healthy living. The first phase of the 75-year growth plan comprises a 650,000 s.f. clinical building and 100,000 s.f. medical office building. Each component of the hospital is flexible, designed to expand incrementally over time. The 154-acre prairie site accommodates a 15-acre manmade geothermal lake, making Sherman one of the largest geothermal healthcare facilities in the world. Reductions in heating and cooling loads will save over 30 percent in energy costs annually, with a projected payback period of under six years. The campus is a metaphor for health, offering opportunities including a paved lakeside path for patients, visitors, and staff to remain active and connected with nature. The project is being completed in association with Loebl Schlossman & Hackl of Chicago and KJWW of Rock Island, Illinois.
