NorthShore University HealthSystems has purchased the medical office building at 2500 Ridge Ave. om Evanston for $5.7 million.
Chicago Health Care Daily reports the three-story COS Building was owned by about 20 physicians, including Dr. H. Jacob Saleh, who separately is selling his four-doctor obstetrics and gynecology practice to NorthShore.
The building is across the street from NorthShore’s Evanston Hospital and the hospital already is a tenant in the nearly fully-leased building.
While the hospital says it has no near term plans for changing the building’s operation, observers quoted by the the newspaper said it appeared the 1960s-vintage structure might eventually be a candidte for replacement by a more modern structure.
