Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago buys old CBS site for new hospital

Chicago Tribune, December 15, 2009
The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago has purchased a vacant lot about a block south of the existing facility for an undisclosed sum. RIC executives said they have outgrown their existing 165-bed facility, which has only 40 private rooms. Also, certain services are located outside of the main hospital building, making it inconvenient for some patients and RIC staff, officials said. "This will be the site of a new facility," Chief Executive Joanne Smith, MD, told the Chicago Tribune.
