The third floor houses the Mary Jo and John Boler Center for Advanced Imaging. Advances in imaging using MRI, CT, fluoroscopy, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and other methods are revolutionizing how heart disease, cancer and a multitude of other conditions are diagnosed and treated.

The Tower is the major component of Rush's 10-year, $1 billion campus redevelopment project called the Rush Transformation, which blends new construction, renovations of select campus buildings and investments in leading technology that includes a comprehensive electronic health information system. It is the largest capital project in Rush's 174-year history.

Rush's new Tower will be Chicago's first full-service, "green" hospital. It was designed to conserve energy and water, reduce waste and use sustainable building materials. Rush is seeking Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification for the Tower. LEED recognizes organizations that design and construct environmentally responsible and efficient buildings. Other new buildings at Rush, a new parking structure and Orthopedic Building completed in 2009, were also built with a host of sustainable features.

"From the outset of our planning, we have worked to develop new models of care and to adapt to changes in the health care environment that will better enable Rush to address critical issues regarding access to care, containing and reducing costs, achieving better outcomes and ensuring that the patient is at the center of the health care continuum," said Peter Butler, president and chief operation officer of Rush.

The new hospital building and the Rush Transformation are being funded by operating revenue, debt financing, philanthropy and city, state and federal grants. Perkins+Will served as the architects for the new hospital. The project, managed by Power/Jacobs Joint Venture, has remained on time and on budget, despite the challenging economic environment.

The new Tower will connect to Rush's existing main hospital building, the Atrium, at 1650 W. Harrison St. Selected areas of the Atrium will be renovated following the opening of the new Tower.
