Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

Two weeks prior to having a massive heart attack, Frankfort resident Darrell Burris was walking through a hardware store and began to have chest pains. A couple days later when he was driving to work, he felt a tightening in his chest. Since the pain went away in 5 minutes, he dismissed the episodes as anxiety attacks due to stress. Then during his fourth episode of chest pain within two weeks, the pain didn’t go away – in fact it worsened.  At this point, Burris went to the Emergency Room at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox. Within 18-minutes of arriving to Silver Cross, Burris was in the Cardiac Cath Lab where Dr. Muawia Martini performed a coronary angioplasty inserting two stents into one of his coronary arteries, which was 99% blocked.

Gerald Kuchta’s knee had bothered him for years. It hurt to walk, stand, and even ride his Harley-Davidson full dresser FLHT Standard. His arthritis had finally gotten the best of him. The 74-year-old New Lenox man was at the VFW when a friend told him about Dr. Robert Daley, one of Chicagoland’s leading orthopaedic surgeons in Total Hip Replacement, Minimally Invasive Hip and Knee Replacement and Knee Arthroscopy. Dr. Daley performed Chicago White Sox great Bo Jackson’s total hip replacement and artificial knee replacement surgery on Chicago Bears Hall of Famer Dan Hampton.
