Cutting-Edge Robotic Radical Prostatectomy Performed at Silver Cross Hospital 

Rob Jamison had no prostate cancer symptoms, but during his yearly screening, results from his blood sample indicated otherwise showing high levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA). After further investigation, a biopsy consisting of 14 samples showed one positive sample for prostate cancer. In order to remove the cancer, Jamison learned the gold standard and least invasive option was to have a robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy.  Unfortunately, Jamison felt that no physicians near his hometown of Champaign, IL had enough experience performing such a surgery.  After searching the internet with his wife, Angie, the pair stumbled upon a Facebook support group page that praised the skill of Dr. Thai Nguyen, medical director of the Midwest Institute of Robotic Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital. More robotic-assisted surgeries are performed at Silver Cross than any other hospital or surgery center in the Chicago metropolitan area.

When Martha Poole McCreery graduated from Dixon State Hospital School of Nursing in 1938 the world was a much different place.  A gallon of gas cost 10 cents and the average cost to purchase a new house was $4,100. As young McCreery began her nursing career, she had no idea that her passion for healthcare would inspire four generations of her family members to follow in her footsteps by working at Silver Cross Hospital.
