Love that there are zero public doors on the entire Chicago Ave blockface! So cool!

because having lots of public access points to a hospital is great for security! Totally love random people entering hospitals from wherever they want!

I'd disagree...

more hospitals should be more like receptionists in round desks. You should be able to access them from each and every possible angle. Including from above and underground. :geek:

Anyone know when HCMC built a new helipad on the main building near the red entrance, and stopped using the top of their big parking ramp across Park?

They finished it right before construction began on the clinic. They still occasionally use the helipad above the parking ramp.

It was a couple years ago, before construction started on their new building. They use the old helipad occasionally still.

I was acutally up there for the grand opening of it. It was the day the did the groundbreaking for the clinic. They had a HUGE tent on the lot where the clinic is, made a big party of it!

The funny part is that the new helipad opened, and as soon as the crane went up on the new site, they used the old helipad almost exclusively.
