Advocate Health Care Plans Outpatient Center in Lincoln Park

Advocate Health Care, the Chicago area’s largest health system, plans to open a new outpatient center in Lincoln Park, reported Crain’s Chicago Business. The plan still needs approval from the Illinois Health Facilities & Services Review Board. 

The health system intends to open the $42-million, 41,000-square-foot facility in Webster Place, a shopping center at 1435-1471 W. Webster Ave. The complex is home to Barnes & Noble and Regal Cinema locations. 

According to its application with the state, Advocate will offer primary care and specialty care services. It will also offer immediate care, physical therapy, lab and imaging services. If approved, Advocate expects the project to be complete in April 2025. The center would join 250 Advocate outpatient centers in the region. 

“Expanding access to care is a pivotal step toward improving the health and well-being of our patients and communities,” Advocate Health Care said in a statement to Crain’s.
