Adventist GlenOaks Hospital
For more than 25 years, Adventist GlenOaks Hospital has provided quality care to the community. The 186-bed hospital offers a full range of services, including emergency care, cardiology and cardiac catheterization, interventional radiology, behavioral health, and obstetrics.
A team of nearly 300 outstanding physicians admit and treat patients at the hospital. Working with experienced and caring nurses, Adventist GlenOaks Hospital is proud to bring some of the most advanced technological services to the community.
In 2007, the hospital opened a new Emergency Department with a unique concept—no waiting room. Upon arrival, patients are immediately taken to a private treatment room, where a nurse or technician will begin treatment. Families are welcome to stay by the patient’s side, and a physician will be available shortly after arrival.
The Emergency Department was named the Shanahan Emergency and Trauma Center in 2008 in honor of Joseph Shanahan, M.D., medical director of Emergency Services at the hospital. Shanahan donated $500,000 to the renovation effort. The ER is approved for pediatrics by the state of Illinois. Board-certified physicians work with a team of trauma-certified nurses to provide the highest level of quality care.
Adventist GlenOaks Hospital’s Heart and Vascular Institute, which opened in 2008, offers the experience of interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and interventional radiologists in one convenient location. Patients with life-threatening heart blockages or those who need pacemakers or implantable defibrillators can now be treated closer to home.
The hospital also provides compassionate and respectful care for adults, seniors and adolescents who are experiencing emotional, psychiatric, behavioral or addiction disorders.
In addition to the extensive offerings discovered through Adventist GlenOaks Hospital are two further hospital campuses in the area, as well as a number of various physicians offering a range of specialties and subspecialties.
Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare
Founded as the first hospital in DuPage County, Elmhurst Memorial Hospital has evolved to become Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare in order to reflect its monumental growth. Currently, the system includes a 427-bed hospital equipped with a physician staff of 600 and a support staff of more than 3,000 employees. Supplementing the main hospital campus are a number of health centers located throughout the western suburbs, including the Elmhurst Memorial Addison Health Center, which houses physician offices, laboratory services, and community classes and programming.
Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare has taken the next step in meeting the needs of this region by setting in motion the construction of a replacement hospital. The organization broke ground on the 50-acre campus in May 2008. Featured in the new acute-care hospital will be all private rooms, a modern Emergency Department, a Heart Hospital, technologically advanced surgical suites, specialized outpatient centers, a Women’s Pavilion/Cancer Center, and more. Opening of the replacement hospital, located at the corner of York and Roosevelt roads in Elmhurst, is slated for fall 2011.
Alexian Brothers Medical Center
Nearby Elk Grove Village is home to the renowned Alexian Brothers Medical Center. A recognized Primary Stroke Center, Alexian Brothers Medical Center offers a wide range of health services, including cancer care, neurology, emergency medical care, orthopedics, pediatrics, women’s services, respiratory care and much more. The system also operates health clinics and a host of Immediate Care Centers and Diagnostic Imaging Centers, including facilities in Addison.
The newest addition to the campus is the five-level bed tower. Upon completion in summer 2009, the new tower will add 108 private beds to the hospital and will serve as a centralized facility for all of the hospital’s diagnostic services.
