Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois Cuts Ribbon on Chicago South Side Expansion.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL), a division of Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC), is celebrating the completion of its new multipurpose center in Chicago’s Morgan Park neighborhood. BCBSIL cut the ribbon on the 130,000 square foot space in Marshfield Plaza at 119th Street and Marshfield Avenue. The site has been transformed from an abandoned retail store into a vast employee workspace coupled with a community-facing Blue Door Neighborhood CenterSM (BDNC).
“We believe in the power of community and how collective action will drive long-term meaningful change for our members and employees where they live and work,” said Maurice Smith, president and CEO of Health Care Service Corporation. “This center, and our ongoing collaboration with the Morgan Park community, is all about creating opportunities and making intentional investments in our local neighborhoods such as new jobs, supporting local businesses and increased access to health and wellness programming. It is our communities that make us stronger.”
Interior Investments partnered with Pepper Construction, JLL, DL3 Realty, Brown & Momen, zpd+a Architects, & DLA Piper to bring the space to life. Using Herman Miller Canvas and ancillary from OFS, Nucraft, System 2/90, Davis, ERG, Source International, Allermuir, Bernhardt, HBF, National, SIS, and Stylex, the space transformed into a hub where teams can work, converse and unwind.
