The medical center would open by 2025 and offer an Immediate Care Center to provide urgent care; primary and specialty care by Northwestern Medicine physicians; pharmacy services; diagnostic services, including mammograms and lab tests; a Cancer Center with chemotherapy services; resources and programming for individual and community health; and opportunities for local retailers.

The center is expected to serve more than 50,000 patients and family members from Bronzeville and nearby communities every year, Mayor Lori Lightfoot's office said in a news release. Approximately 1,000 construction and 100 healthcare and related jobs will be created, the office said.
