Hospital needs $52 million facelift to prep for University of Chicago partnership, study says

Chicago Tribune, April 1, 2010

It will cost up to $52 million in capital upgrades at Provident Hospital before the money-losing hospital would be ready for a partnership with the University of Chicago Medical Center, a consultant's report says. The Cook County (IL) Health & Hospitals System is studying whether to form a partnership that would bring the the University of Chicago's physicians to Provident to treat patients and train aspiring doctors. Provident would benefit by receiving patient referrals and a marketing boost by adding the University of Chicago's name and patient care expertise to the 119-bed facility, the Chicago Tribune reports.
