The Emergency Department at Rush Oak Park Hospital had been serving more than double the number of patients it was designed for in 1969. With its new addition, the hospital creates a new 22,000 sq ft Emergency Department along with additional program and support space. SGH provided building enclosure commissioning services as a subconsultant to BR+A Consulting Engineers.
