The 30,000 square foot Presence Health-Healing Arts Pavilion ambulatory care center marks the second collaborative effort between the developer and the health system

CHICAGO and ROMEOVILLE, Ill., Oct. 17, 2016 – Providing excellence in healthcare to growing, underserved communities might be challenging, but the benefits realized can be truly life-changing when a dedicated team collaborates to build a needed asset.

That is the anticipated result of a new, 30,000 square foot senior ambulatory care center (ACC) in the Village of Romeoville, 26 miles southwest of Chicago. October 17, marked the grand opening to the public of the new Presence Health-Romeoville Healing Arts Pavilion at 500 S. Weber Road, a welcome addition in this quickly developing area with an increasing need for quality primary care.

Owned by Hammes Partners, the one-story ACC will provide an unparalleled patient experience in the greater Romeoville community. It features 18 private exam rooms and a full range of diagnostic and imaging services, including X-ray, ultrasound, CT scanning, bone densitometry and mammography. Among its high-performing features, the facility also has a clinical laboratory, and such and family visitor-friendly features such as a café offering healthy food options and a gathering space with fireplace.

Hammes Company and Presence Health previously collaborated on the development of the 10-story Presence Center for Advanced Care in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, which opened in October 2015.

“Presence Healing Arts Pavilion project represents the second successful ambulatory care project in two years that we’ve completed with Presence Health, a relationship that is very meaningful to us,” said Michael Scholl, Senior Vice President Facility Development for Hammes Company. “We are pleased that we could utilize a collaborative effort with the planning team that will make a meaningful difference to the lives of the patients and families, the physicians and the Romeoville community.”

“The Village of Romeoville is truly excited to welcome Presence Health,” said Mayor John Noak. “The Presence Saint Joseph team worked first to discover the needs of our community, and then set out to create a center expressly designed to address those needs. I think that says a lot about the character of the organization and their commitment to patient care.”

Hammes Company and the project team broke ground on the project in November 2015, with fast-track completion in less than a year. Along with Hammes Company, the project team includes Chicago-based architect Jensen and Halstead and Woodridge, Ill.-based general contractor Morgan/Harbour Construction.

The facility is 100 percent leased by sole tenant Presence Health.
