DuPage Medical Group’s New Glen Ellyn Medical Facility To Open In March

February 28, 2008

Rik Baier, Chief Oper­a­tions Offi­cer of DuPage Med­ical Group spoke to the Glen Ellyn Rotary Club at Barones Restau­rant in Glen Ellyn. Mr. Baier pre­sent­ed infor­ma­tion on the final stages of con­struc­tion of the new med­ical facil­i­ty locat­ed 430 Penn­syl­va­nia in Glen Ellyn. 

The new facil­i­ty will replace the cur­rent med­ical build­ing locat­ed at 454 Penn­syl­va­nia, which has been ser­vic­ing the health and med­ical needs of Glen Ellyn and sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties for over 40 years. The new med­ical facil­i­ty will be com­plet­ed the begin­ning of March 2008. Once all med­ical depart­ments have moved to the new build­ing, demo­li­tion to the old build­ing will begin with an esti­mat­ed com­ple­tion date of May 2008. A park­ing lot for the new facil­i­ty will be con­struct­ed on the demol­ished site and should be com­plet­ed in July of this year.

The new build­ing will have 92,000 square feet of space. State-of-the-art diag­nos­tic equip­ment as well as uni­ver­si­ty hos­pi­tal-cal­iber equip­ment will be installed includ­ing a com­plete film­less envi­ron­ment which has the abil­i­ty to store all radi­ol­o­gy images on CD. There will also be a com­pre­hen­sive women’s cen­ter designed towards women’s com­fort and med­ical needs. Dig­i­tal mam­mog­ra­phy, dexa scan ser­vices (mea­sure­ment of bone den­si­ty), and ultra­sound are some of the pro­ce­dures offered to women.

Phys­i­cal Ther­a­py ser­vices have been expand­ed to include occu­pa­tion­al and hand ther­a­py. With the larg­er space, more types of ther­a­py treat­ments will be imple­ment­ed, includ­ing treat­ment for women’s health issues. There will also be expand­ed lab ser­vices on the premis­es, an opti­cal bou­tique, as well as addi­tion­al retail shops.
