About the Center Street Redevelopment Project
In July 2011, Sherman Health leased space to Greater Elgin Family Care Center to provide the community expanded walk-in care services at our 901 Center Street campus. These services, along with Sherman's Sleep Lab, Home Care, Corporate Services, Property & Project Management, Sherman Choice, SCORE, Elgin Center Pharmacy and offices for seven physicians groups, are housed within the John A. Graham Building and the medical office buildings.
With this consolidation of services into our newer buildings, Sherman is redeveloping the older, underutilized areas of the campus into open green space. This includes the former hospital building and the parking deck. For more details, visit www.ShermanHealth.com/CenterStreet.
