Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest (Ill.) Hospital will open its $399 million replacement facility March 3, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Set on a 160-acre campus, the new 500,000-square-foot hospital houses 114 private inpatient rooms, 72 outpatient care spaces, 106 clinic examination rooms and eight operating rooms.  The surrounding campus has 7,000 feet of bicycle paths, 700 trees and a six-acre bond.

The new facility will replace the existing, aging Lake Forest Hospital. The old hospital will be partially demolished, while other parts may be repurposed.

Construction on the replacement facility began in August 2014.
