Northwestern Medicine Begins Bethany Road Project to Prepare for New Health & Wellness Center

DeKalb, Illinois – July 10, 2018 – In preparation for the opening of the Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Health & Wellness Center this fall, roadwork is now underway on Bethany Road and will continue over three months. Plans include the addition of a four-way traffic signal at the intersection of Bethany Road and Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Hospital’s private northwest loop near the entrance to the wellness center. Periodic lane closures will be necessary during this project.


The traffic signal will be interconnected with the existing light at Greenwood Acres Drive to better regulate traffic. Bethany Road will be widened to the east and west of the intersection to accommodate the addition of eastbound and westbound dedicated left-turn lanes. A new right-in/right-out driveway will be built for Kishwaukee YMCA’s access to its west parking lot from the private northwest loop. This project includes $1.5 million in improvements to benefit traffic flow near the much-anticipated wellness center.


Unrelated to the Kishwaukee Health & Wellness Center opening, ongoing utility work and road resurfacing on Bethany and Sycamore roads continue.


The 111,000-square-foot wellness center located at 626 East Bethany Road in DeKalb will house modern cardio and strength equipment, an indoor walking track, a gymnasium, full-service locker rooms with spas, saunas and steam rooms, a 25-yard lap pool, a warm water therapy pool, and a kids’ zone for children 6 months to 11 years old.


Memberships for the Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Health & Wellness Center are available now at a sales office opening in Windmill Plaza, located at 2731 Sycamore Road, between the Northwestern Medicine Hospice office and Northwestern Medicine Kishwaukee Hospital. The membership sales office will be open Monday through Thursday, from 9 am to 8 pm, Fridays from 9 am to 7pm, Saturdays from 8 am to 5 pm, and Sundays from noon to 6 pm.
