by John Nelson

CHICAGO — The University of Chicago Medicine has broken ground on a $43 million emergency department on Chicago’s South Side. Expected to open in early 2018, the new department will house four trauma bays, according to the Chicago Tribune. The Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board unanimously approved UChicago Medicine’s plans for the project in May. The new emergency department is part of a $269 million program to provide the South Side with access to emergency, adult trauma and specialty care. The expansion will add 188 inpatient beds and create more than 1,000 permanent jobs.
