John Stroger hospital has a very industrial look to it. The façade is full of windows and brick, and has many different levels to it. It is the hospital that the old TV drama ER was based off of. It is also the first hospital that I ever got to shadow people at. I took a summer course in Chicago my sophomore year of high school and we got to see some of the old hospitals around the area, and tour Northwestern University’s medical center as well. We got to ride in the emergency elevator that took us up 10 floors in a matter of seconds. It was here that I decided that the medical field is something that I could work in for the rest of my life.
