The Rehabilitation Center of Chicago’s CEO and president, Joanne Smith brought on Clive Wilkinson Architects, HDR, and Gensler for a brilliant collaboration and rebranding of the center into the new and improved Shirley Ryan AbilityLab. The new lab brings researchers, doctors, nurses, and patients into one place that builds off of progress through collaboration. By bringing each sector together with no offices, barriers, or hierarchies, the physicians and therapists are connected with the recovery process. We are so excited to have worked on this breakthrough in healthcare design.
