Northwestern Medicine® today announced that on March 1 it will open a new Outpatient Center at 2701 Patriot Boulevard in Glenview, Illinois. At this new center, 20-30 physicians will offer patients a wide range of primary care and specialty clinical services.
"We know that many of our patients travel from far-reaching suburbs to receive care at Northwestern," said Norman Botsford , chief operating officer of Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation (NMFF). "Expanding our outpatient services into the communities where patients live and work alleviates the need to travel into Chicago to receive the Northwestern care they've come to trust and value. And most importantly if inpatient care is ever needed, these locations afford seamless transition into Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital."
The new Outpatient Center is part of previously announced plans to expand access to Northwestern's quality clinical care in the northern suburbs. The Glenview site is one of seven new Northwestern Medicine clinics, five of which have already opened in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, Evanston, Libertyville, Grayslake and Highland Park, Illinois. Northwestern Medicine will open the seventh clinical site in north suburban Deerfield, Illinois this spring.
Primary care services to be offered at the Glenview Outpatient Center include internal medicine and pediatrics. Specialty services will include cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, optometry, orthopaedics, otolaryngology, sports medicine and urology. Laboratory and X-ray services will be offered immediately with advanced imaging services—like MRI screens and CT scanning—to be offered by summer 2013.
