Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital's Campus Master Plan was adopted by the Lake Forest City Council in the Fall of 2012 following the recommendations provided by the Plan Commission. The Master Plan provides for revitalization of the Campus to allow the Hospital to maintain the property and buildings over the long term.
Construction on the site has begun. A temporary parking lot for construction parking and employee parking was installed in the Fall 2014. Excavation for the detention pond and the hospital building foundation began in early 2015 and new berms will be formed on the perimeters of the hospital campus in preparation for plantings in the Spring and Summer of 2015. Construction will continue in 2016 and 2017, with a targed opening date of September 2017.
