Cook County To Rehabilitate Storied Medical Center

Cook County announced plans this week to rehabilitate a storied medical center. The 102-year-old Cook County Hospital campus will be redeveloped into a hotel, apartments and retail shops. Chicago Tribune architecture critic Blair Kamin joins us to talk about what’s in store for what he calls “the beloved but battered” building that was shuttered in 2002.
