Taking advantage of the weak suburban office market, Advocate Health Care is moving its headquarters to Downers Grove, Ill.,from Oak Brook, Ill., this spring, the state's largest health system confirmed on Friday.
Advocate will move about 600 employees to Highland Landmark I, a seven-story structure at 3075 Highland Parkway. Advocate will lease 139,470 square feet or 3-1/2 floors, a spokeswoman says. The move will be completed by late this spring, Advocate said in a statement.
Advocate will move two office support centers to Downers Grove, from Oak Brook and Park Ridge. Its current campus, 2025 Windsor Drive, Oak Brook, then will be used as a centralized business office, which will combine all of Advocate's Chicago-area patient access/registration and patient accounting operations into one department, according to Advocate.
