Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital Announces Reopening

Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital is opening its doors to the public on Sat., May 14. The long anticipated modernization project opening will improve the patient care experience by enhancing privacy, offering the most advanced technology and making it more convenient to access inpatient and outpatient services.

“We could never stand here today without the substantial support of our many friends and neighbors throughout the communities we serve,” says Karen Lambert, Good Shepherd Hospital president. “As construction is completed, you’ll see the results of thoughtful input from patients, doctors, associates, families, community groups, architects and engineers. Through the devotion and support of Advocate and all of our generous friends, we can’t wait to show you the hospital of the future during our open house event.”

“Good Shepherd Hospital continues to be a vital resource in Barrington that we wholeheartedly support,” says Paul and Barbara Hills, modernization capital campaign co-chairs. “This level of care – clinically excellent, compassionate and close to home – is an asset we can take pride in and preserve for generations to come.”

The community open house on Sat., May 14, begins at 10 a.m. and will include:

• A ribbon cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. to honor our community and our patients.
• Guided tours of the new hospital including sights of the north patient care pavilion, the new main entrance, private patient rooms, new operating rooms, a new breast center and more!
• Star 105.5 will join us for live-interviews and on-site entertainment.
• Infant car seat checks and bike helmet fittings will be available to the first 200 attendees.

The highly anticipated opening of this hospital includes some additional key features:

• All private beds providing a quiet, calmer healing environment to help patients return home as quickly as possible.
• The modernized facility was designed to improve patient access and create a more streamlined flow.
• Four new inpatient units including spacious Intensive Care Unit and eight new operating rooms.
• Modernized non-clinical areas include lobby, public/visitor space, circulation, materials management, simulation laboratory, chapel, community education and conference center.
• The modernization is built for long-term durability of infrastructure and systems including upgrading systems covering the current and new buildings, improving energy efficiency using LEED guidelines, targeting LEED Silver certification.
