Opening of the Center for Care and Discovery

February 23, 2013

The University of Chicago Medicine completed its move into the Center for Care and Discovery on Saturday, February 23, transporting 145 patients from Mitchell Hospital into the new, state-of-the-art facility. The move started at 7 a.m. and took about seven hours -- ending two-and-a-half hours sooner than originally scheduled. The last patient arrived in his new room at the Center for Care and Discovery at 1:58 p.m.

“Every patient is safe and sound, and that's what matters,” said Debra Albert, chief nursing officer at the University of Chicago Medicine. “Thanks to great teamwork, meticulous planning and lots of practice by everyone involved, we surpassed our expectations.” » Learn more about the opening of the Center for Care and Discovery.
