Money to Burn

Rush University Medical Center has big things in store for several of its older buildings, reports Crain's. Having just opened its radically-designed $673M building, it's casting new scrutiny on nearby buildings that don't measure up in terms of appearance and amenity. The $46M renovation project will focus on two primary structures: the Atrium Building and the Kellogg Building. The renovation is a much about consolidation as anything, and several smaller buildings will participate in a tangle of bed-shuffling and re-organization set to wrap in 2016. In keeping with the 'outpatient' trend, the hospital's total number of beds will slightly decrease. But hey, if you do land one it'll have a flatscreen. At least two of the smaller buildings—The Jones and The Murdock—face demolition in the end. [Crain's]
