The Advisory Board raises funds for Silver Cross Hospital by operating a resale shop, called the Encore Shop which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. The Encore Shop is located on Walnut Street just north of the hospital’s Keck Emergency Pavilion and is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Donations are welcome. For more information, call Volunteers Services at Silver Cross Hospital at (815) 740-7117.
Over the past 10 years, the Advisory Board has donated more than $572, 0000 to Silver Cross for the purchase of X-ray equipment for the Emergency Department, ICU beds, laptop computers for Home Health nurses, dialysis and mammography equipment, surgery carts and instruments, cardiac software, and a new pick-up truck used to maintain the grounds of the hospital campus. The group recently completed a $75,000 pledge to purchase the water feature in the Serenity Garden outside the Silver Cross Replacement Hospital opening in February 2012.
