Building a New Vision for Cardiovascular Care

Since breaking ground in July 2022, construction of the new NorthShore Cardiovascular Institute (CVI) pavilion at NorthShore Glenbrook Hospital has been making impressive progress.

The 170,000-square-foot build-out at the hospital campus will become a regional destination for advanced cardiovascular care and will centralize NorthShore’s cardiovascular specialists and fellows in one location, ensuring optimal collaboration.

Since July 2023, the NorthShore Foundation has been organizing regular hard-hat tours of the space as it is being built. Partners from IFS, the construction company leading the project, as well as NorthShore physicians and Glenbrook Hospital President Jesse Peterson Hall, have joined NorthShore Foundation staff and small groups of engaged community supporters on insightful and informative tours of the CVI pavilion. 

Among the many points of interest in the tour is the building’s capability to adapt to future technologies for surgical procedures, such as robotic surgery. The pavilion was also designed with the input of physicians, nurses, imaging specialists and other patient caregivers to ensure the final layout of each room was conducive to seamless patient care delivery.

“Our vision is to create a center of cardiovascular excellence that brings together world-renowned experts and emerging technologies such as AI, robotics and genetic testing,” said Gregory Mishkel, MD, MBA, Chief, Division of Cardiology and Co-Director, CVI. “From prevention to recovery, we are committed to using the best of cardiovascular medicine to treat the whole person.”

Tours will continue in the pavilion through 2023 and into early 2024. The new space is expected to open in early April 2024.
