FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

As we begin a new year, I want to take this opportunity to reaffirm my commitment to our bold vision for transforming the IMD into the world's next great innovation district. We celebrated many accomplishments in 2017, but we're expecting even bigger things in 2018.

Planned developments continue taking shape throughout the District. We are also working closely with our partners at CBRE to provide new development opportunities on the nearly 39 acres of available land here. As we look to attract the best and brightest in healthcare and technology, we know that there will be an impact for our existing partners.

We will ensure that any new partner coming to the IMD will not only contribute to our overall purpose, but will also seek out collaborative partnerships with our existing stakeholders in ways that will advance healthcare delivery and outcomes, while generating prosperity for everyone.

I hope you enjoyed the holiday season, and I'm ready for us to write together the next chapter in the IMD's incredible story.

FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

As another year comes to a close, I look back with pride and a sense of accomplishment for all of the amazing progress that was made throughout the District in 2017. We have multiple cranes in the air, signifying a push toward modern redevelopment of the built environment. And as the face of the district is changing, additional development projects are in the works for the coming year.

We also had many opportunities in 2017 to socialize our new strategic plan, which outlines our vision for establishing the IMD as the world's next great health innovation district. Building awareness of, and gaining support for our plan is the most critical step, because without your support, we cannot achieve the cohesive, synergistic environment that is a hallmark of successful innovation districts.

In short, we've taken bold steps this year, but none of it would be possible without the great work and support from you, our IMD partners. We're looking forward to amazing things and continued progress in 2018.

Finally, I'd like to wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season.

In an effort to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes on Chicago's west side, the four IMD hospitals created the Total Health Collaborative.

RED CROSS RAPID PASS MOBILE

Two years ago, in an effort to streamline the process for blood and platelet donors, The American Red Cross created the Rapid Pass Program. Rapid Pass allows donors to complete pre-donation reading and answer health history questions from a personal computer or mobile device prior to arriving at a blood drive or donation center. Last week, the Red Cross announced that Rapid Pass is now compatible with mobile devices.
