WHY: Demand for professional psychiatric treatment is higher than ever. Not only will CLH help to meet the need of individuals throughout Northeast Illinois, the pavilion is part of a three phase expansion program at CLH that will revitalize several properties within the Uptown neighborhood and create as many as 200 jobs.
We are happy to see this long vacant building being put to good use.
