The expansion project at Northwestern Grayslake has been officially certified for its environmentally friendly design, becoming the most recent of many Northwestern Medicine® health system construction projects to be nationally recognized for being green, according to an article on the Trib Local Grayslake & Gurnee website.

Grayslake Phase III, a 3-story, 90,000-square-foot addition to the existing outpatient facility, was awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver status by the U.S. Green Building Council.

"This achievement continues to emphasize our commitment to sustainability and our focus on making our campuses green," says James J. Mladucky, AIA, ACHA, CCS, director of Facility Planning and Construction for Northwestern Memorial HealthCare.

The Grayslake expansion project includes the relocation of a retention pond and associated wetlands area, the creation of a healing garden and clinical expansion space targeted for cancer, orthopaedics and rehabilitation services. It also includes support and clinic space for the new Northwestern McGaw Family Medicine Residency program.
