Welcome to Our New Offices, New Era

As of this Specialist deadline date in late February, the SVS staff was still settling in, unpacking boxes, creating new work spaces and – a very important task! – locating the coffeemaker.

The Society for Vascular Surgery is open for business in its new headquarters office at 9400 W. Higgins Road in Rosemont, Ill., just minutes from O’Hare International Airport. Its new digs are, in the words of President Dr. Michel S. Makaroun, “a home for vascular surgeons from all over the country and around the world.”

At 12,000 square feet, SVS’ new space is nearly twice the size of the Chicago office and has room for growth in programming, initiatives, member benefits, and for staff to support those priorities.

Personnel that interact frequently are located near each other, to make collaboration simpler. The new HQ features a 4,000-square-foot meeting center that can seat up to 40 for a large meeting or training session, and has moveable airwalls to configure the space into one, two or three meeting rooms; up to three councils, committees, sections or task forces can meeting simultaneously. All meeting rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to accommodate webinars and web conference calls. Day-to-day, the meeting center can accommodate the entire staff for meetings. “It will be a pleasure to convene the staff and not have colleagues forced to stand or sit along the perimeter of the room,” noted Executive Director Kenneth M. Slaw, PhD.

The new SVS office also offers:

» A convenient location near O’Hare, eliminating the need to rent meeting space several times a year

» Access

  • To additional educational space in the building
  • To a state-of-the-art surgical simulation training facility
  • For members to staff

» Double-duty spaces, such as the lunchroom/coffee room that in other hours can become a large space for collaboration.

We’re open for business. And the next chapter in the history of the SVS has begun. Next time you swing through O’Hare and have a few minutes, come visit us!
