The long awaited demolition and re-development of the Children's Memorial Hospital campus in Lincoln Park is upon us.  Demo crews started tearing down the main hospital building yesterday.  My wife worked at Children's Lincoln Park as a floor nurse than manager. Now she is a Director in Streeterville at the newly built Lurie Children's Hospital (same company) completed in 2012.

My Facebook page was filled with posts of friends who worked at the old hospital (most still with Lurie Children's now). Several swung by to take photos like the one below:
