The [West Side medical warehouse] project is going so well, said James Knight, a region director for Concordance, the company hopes to replicate it with willing hospital partners in other areas. “This format of creating jobs and opportunity is easily duplicated, and not just on the West Side of Chicago,” he said. “It can be on the South Side. It can be in LA or New York.”
