July 08, 2021
“Opening the new Mokena location is a milestone is our expansion into the southwest suburbs,” said Howard Chrisman, MD, senior vice president, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare. “It is another example of Northwestern Medicine’s commitment to providing high quality, compassionate health care to communities throughout the Chicagoland area.”
The new ambulatory site will extend access to Northwestern Medicine into the south suburbs to better meet the healthcare and wellness needs of patients closer to where they live and work. Specialty services include gynecology with plans to add orthopaedics and obstetrics. X-ray, CT, and a point-of-care laboratory are featured at this location. Additional diagnostic imaging services are scheduled to open later this year.
The public is invited to an open house at Northwestern Medicine Mokena, 21202 South Owens Road, from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, July 10. Tours of the new building will be offered with additional information available in the Immediate Care Center, Lab, Exam Rooms and Point of Care Procedure Rooms. Staff will also discuss telehealth options. Those who complete a tour will receive a ticket for a complimentary ice cream.
