The new Howard Broqwn Health facility in Lakeview will double the capacity on Chicago's North Side

McHugh Construction Goes Vertical on Howard Brown Health Facility 

Chicago-based McHugh Construction has started vertical construction on a new five-story healthcare facility and medical office at 3501 N. Halsted St. for Howard Brown Health, the Midwest’s largest LGBTQ healthcare organization, after breaking ground in late March in the city’s Lakeview neighborhood.  

Being developed in partnership with Inland National Development Company, the new flagship center will double its patient capacity in the neighborhood and will offer expanded medical care and social service.  

The 91,000-square-foot building will replace a Howard Brown clinic at 3245 N. Halsted St. Construction is on track for completion in 2023. 

““There’s already tremendous anticipation for this project given the enhancements and expansion it will bring to Howard Brown’s services in the area, and now that construction is visibly moving forward – and up – we’re enjoying the excitement and goodwill of the community as work progresses,” said Ken Maiberger, superintendent.
