The University of Chicago Medicine broke ground on its 108,000-square-foot, four-story ambulatory health care facility in Orland Park in September.

Orland Park Mayor Dan McLaughlin recently joined village staff for a tour of the facility that is slated to open in December, 2016.

"We are very pleased with the medical services that the University of Chicago Medicine will bring to Orland Park," McLaughlin said. "And, we are also pleased with the number of construction jobs created by this project and the medical jobs that the University of Chicago is bringing to Orland Park."

Plans for the Center for Advanced Care at Orland Park include 80 exam rooms with services in radiation oncology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, cardiology, pediatrics, women's health and surgical consulting. The University of Chicago Medical Center is investing more than $61 million in Orland Park's downtown area.

The multi-use building will occupy about two acres in Orland Park's downtown area and will include a pharmacy and a freestanding 530-space parking garage, which will be available to patients and the public.

The development is expected to employ more than 100 people, create approximately 200 construction jobs and bring 80,000 visitors and patients to Orland Park.
