Cook County Hospital Strategic Redevelopment
Cook County Hospital (now Stroger Hospital) has long been recognized, and remains today, one of the world’s great teaching hospitals attracting physicians from around the country and serving the health care needs of the city and the region. The introduction of County Care has afforded the Stroger Campus the opportunity to be fiscally sound and look to the future as a national leader in health care specialties. On March 12, 2014, the Cook County Board of Commissioners approved the engagement of a strategic professional team to address the hospital’s future needs and to leverage the inherent real estate value from the available land. The strategic development manager team will articulate the vision of the County Board President, the County Commissioners and the CCHHS leadership and provide the development parameters to help solve for CCHHS’ 1) core medical needs at Stroger Campus and 2) identify potentials for redevelopment of available real estate to both enhance the overall site, and provide revenue sources through mixed use development.
