(Photo) Demolition of an old Rush University hospital building

Rush University Hospital opened a dazzling medical center in 2011 and had no need for some of its older buildings, such as the one being demolished in the photograph I took on Thursday.

It was once the Daniel A. Jones Hospital at 1753 W. Congress Parkway and it opened in 1888. If you are on the eastbound lanes of the Eisenhower Expressway you'll see what's left of the building, but not for much longer.
