Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects’ Lake Forest Hospital Campus, Northwestern Medicine received the Award of Merit for Healthcare in the 2017 Best Projects Awards from ENR Midwest.

Lake Forest Hospital, Northwestern Medicine, is a Chicago-area community hospital on a bucolic 64.7-hectare (160-acre) campus that dates to 1942. This project replaces the main patient-care building with a state-of-the-art inpatient hospital and a medical office building. The new buildings integrate with the natural and built features of the campus, which include areas of open fields and several medical and administrative buildings.
