Rush Plans $70M Outpatient Facility at Former Sears Site in Galewood

Rush University System for Health on Monday announced plans for a new $70-million outpatient center at the former Sears site at North and Harlem avenues in Chicago’s Galewood neighborhood, on the border of Elmwood Park and Oak Park.  

The 60,000-square-foot facility also will be home to a new grocery, as initially envisioned by Tucker Development at the beginning of the project.

The outpatient center will significantly expand access to RUSH multispecialty care in Chicago and near west communities like Oak Park, River Forest and Elmwood Park, the health system said. 

“Investments like these not only provide benefits to patients in need of care, but they also represent a significant investment by RUSH in jobs, accessibility and health equity,” said Dr. Dino Rumoro, CEO of RUSH Oak Park Hospital and a primary advocate for the facility.  

Details of the grocery will be announced in the near future.
