For about 30 years, JourneyCare has maintained an office just north of the Loop for its Chicago advanced illness clinical and business teams. Last week, the team shifted its city staff members to a new highly-visible space at 549 W. Randolph St. directly across from the French Market on Clinton St.
With floor to ceiling windows and lofted ceilings, the 8,500-square-foot open office concept space will house JourneyCare’s existing 15-person staff with room to house more than 10 more team members to meet the organization’s growth needs for the next few years.
“JourneyCare’s new downtown office will be a showcase space for the organization,” Kelly Fischer, JourneyCare’s Chief Operating Officer told the group of donors and JourneyCare staff gathered Wednesday for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration. Chicago Wolves mascot, “Skates,” also mingled with those gathered during the festivities.
The new location, right in the heart of Chicago’s bustling business center and with access to rail and public transportation, is a strategic move for the organization, said Fischer.
“We are thrilled to be in such a great location to serve the Chicago community,” said Fischer.
With 40 years of healthcare leadership and expertise, JourneyCare has achieved national recognition for growth, innovation, community partnerships and best practices in caring for adults and children with serious illness. JourneyCare serves 10 counties in the Chicago region and is the largest nonprofit provider of hospice and palliative care in Illinois. The agency also provides services that include JourneyCare House Calls, Chronic Care Management and JourneyCare Choices – serving patients at all stages of serious illness. JourneyCare is dedicated to enriching lives through expert, compassionate care and empowering patients and families to live with dignity, on their own terms.
