Advocate Christ Medical Center
As part of a multi-disciplinary team, Hitchcock Design Group was brought in to assist with the design of the New Patient Care Tower for Advocate Christ Medical Center. The new patient tower brings an additional 232 private patient rooms to the campus, as well as a new clinical lab to expand the services the medical center is able to offer patients. Additionally, a new kitchen, servery and dining areas are a part of the patient tower with the goal of enhancing patient, visitor and staff dining experiences. To address the pedestrian experience on the urban campus, overall improvements to the streetscape were instituted and circulation issues were resolved by redesigning the entrance to the hospital. To complete the enhancements, a green roof was added to create a space for a staff garden.
Let’s build a relationship that helps you reach your planning and landscape architecture goals.
“Hitchcock goes out of their way to make sure they’re responsive, helpful, and doing things that aren’t necessarily their responsibility. They’re just all-around quality. Any project that I do going forward they will always, always be included in my RFP, whether it’s city or suburban.”
“Some architects will just say ‘how dare you!’ but Hitchcock encourages changes. Relationships and creativity is what it boils down to—it’s why I like them the best and what sets them apart from others.”
“Hitchcock thinks beyond straight lines and 90-degree angles.”
“With Hitchcock, I felt like they really went above and beyond, and they’re extremely responsive. They take more of a leadership role, which is helpful, especially with a complicated project.”

“Their work comes with a level of empathy with the user to say ‘it’s more than plants. How can this be an uplifting space? How can this invigorate someone?’ That’s different. That’s unique.”
“One of Hitchcock’s strengths is the amount of work they put in when they’re getting to know a community. They show you they really understand the issues your community is considering. They’re very thorough in their approach. It’s clear they’ve done their homework.”
“Communication, creativity, meeting timeliness, meeting institutional expectations; we’re not an easy client. Hitchcock goes out of their way to work with us.”
“They’ve earned our trust. They listen to us and come back with solutions that really meet our needs. They let you start to dream …”
“What keeps coming back to me is their willingness, their ability, and their responsiveness to help manage the situation at hand.”
“They work in a very collaborative manner in discussions and presentations. They make sure you fully understand it. If there are any questions at all, they can help you with it.”
