The old Cook County Hospital, which played a key role in the history of medicine, closed 16 years ago. But a $145 million makeover is now underway, according to an article on the WGN website.
Resurrection of the hospital involves rehabilitation, renovation and restoration, the article said.

In about a year, the old hospital will be home to two new hotels, medical offices, retail spaces and a small museum dedicated to the building's history and its influence on healthcare.
