adult Down syndrome center hosts new construction ceremony

Advocate Medical Group recently hosted a beam-signing celebration to mark the construction of a one-story medical office building on the southwest corner of the Advocate Lutheran General Hospital campus in Park Ridge, Ill. By hosting this ceremony, AMG honored the construction team for their quality work, the architects for their vision, and all of our associates, nurses, physicians, volunteers and patients who helped in the planning process and will occupy the building.

The building will be the new home of Advocate Medical Group’s Adult Down Syndrome Center (ADSC). It will include more exam rooms, a community center area and a number of special features to better accommodate the needs of individuals with Down syndrome and their families. Building completion is planned for the end of first quarter 2012.

Pictured at the event signing the beam that will become a permanent part of the building are (from left to right): Advocate Medical Group vice president of operations Cynthia Job, Advocate Medical Group president James Dan, M.D., and Advocate Medical Group’s chief medical officer Kevin McCune, M.D. Also in attendance were: physician leaders; patients; donors; staff; Mike Daly, chief of staff for Senator Dick Durbin; Illinois State Senator Dan Kotowski; and Illinois State Representative Elaine Nekritz.
