PORTAGE PARK — A medical facility that broke ground earlier this year is now open on the Far Northwest Side.
Advocate Medical Group has expanded its services with a two-story building at 3950 N. Milwaukee Ave., offering primary care, cardiology services, skin disorder and eye care services, diabetes care and more, according to the medical group.
In October, obstetrics and gynecology services will be added to the facility, which also has an on-site lab.
Appointments at the Six Corners location can be on the LiveWell app, at advocatehealth.com or by calling 800-3ADVOCATE.
The facility takes over the old Bank of America parking lot, which has been vacant since the bank closed in 2014. The area has been seeing a revival in business.
Julie Nakis, a spokesperson for Advocate Medical Group, said the outpatient center is not hiring, but people can go to the company’s careers website, which is always updated.
The center opened at the end of August after beginning construction in January. It’s one of the projects from GW Properties, a Northwest Side developer that has also been working on a revised proposal of the former People’s Gas site, 3955 N. Kilpatrick Ave., which the company is calling the Shops at Six Corners.
Mitch Goltz, GW Properties principal and co-founder, said his team is finalizing updated renderings for the Shops at Six Corners proposal. A meeting with the community should be scheduled in a few weeks, he said.
The medical facility sits across from a 10-story senior housing building, The Clarendale, which will have 258 residences and 11 affordable units, as well as retail anchors such as Aldi. It’s set to be completed by the end of the year.
