The site plan and exterior appearance for Adventist Hinsdale Hospital's new 54,000-square-foot cancer center were unanimously approved by the Hinsdale Board of Trustees Tuesday night.
The Adventist Cancer Institute is planned for a large, vacant property near the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Salt Creek Lane, just west of I-294. It will cost approximately $48 million to be built, according to its website.
Village President Tom Cauley thanked the hospital officials in attendance Tuesday for a project that complied with the village's zoning code, from setbacks to parking.
"This to some extent debunks the myth that you can't have a major project in Hinsdale that complies with the zoning code," Cauley said.
Adventist Hinsdale Hospital spokesperson Christopher LaFortune said Wednesday in an email that a start date for construction has not been determined, and the existing vacant building on the property still needs to be demolished.
"It will take 18 months to complete the building once construction begins," LaFortune said.
