Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center – Phase II
Two construction projects will take place in 2019-2020 so we can continue to provide convenient access to high-quality care.
- Wellington building: A new four-story facility for our existing outpatient counseling services and the Pediatric Developmental Center to be located at North Mildred and West Wellington avenues
- Sheffield building: A new facility for outpatient physical therapy and sports medicine, including a five-story parking structure, to be built at the northeast corner of North Sheffield and West Wellington avenues
We appreciate your patience during construction. Please anticipate some construction noise, traffic disturbances and street closures in the following areas during the various phases of development:
- Minor noise from engine idling on North Sheffield Avenue between West Nelson and West Wellington streets during the daytime hours of early summer
- More substantial noise, street closures and traffic disturbances in the surrounding area during each project’s demolition phase (starting in the summer of 2019) and new building phase (beginning later in 2019 and finishing in late 2020)
Wellington Avenue Sidewalk Closure for Demolition 10/9 thru 12/15/19:
As part of the construction of the new Physical Therapy Clinic and parking garage at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, we will be demolishing two structures at 946/948 W. Wellington Ave from 10/9 thru 12/15/19. The North sidewalk along Wellington Ave will be closed from Sheffield Ave to the CTA tracks. We will also be closing the South section of the gravel parking lot at the corner of N. Sheffield Ave and W. Wellington Ave for demolition staging.
We’re committed to providing you with information about the status of these developments and look forward to offering you an enhanced collection of services once construction is complete. Please contact Illinois Masonic Medical Center or the City of Chicago 44th Ward office with any questions or concerns.
