Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

For newly diagnosed cancer patients, fears about cancer treatment can be just as intense as fears about the cancer itself.

The Silver Cross Foundation announces the recent appointment of Laura Czerkies to its Board of Directors.

In July 2017, Brian Wood of Braidwood had a life-changing event that began as the worst headache he’d ever had in his life!  

Due to the increased incidence of influenza (flu) activity, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) along with the Will County Health Department have issued notification with the following temporary visiting restrictions to protect our patients, visitors and staff: 

  • No visitors under the age of 18 years will be allowed to visit 
  • Limit of two (2) visitors per room 
  • If you have a fever, cough, sore throat, vomiting and/or diarrhea, please postpone your visit until you have been symptom-free for 24 hours 
  • Patients in isolation for influenza will have visitors at the caregivers’ discretion AND must comply with wearing masks 

Earlier this year, Tom Welsh, a talented musician who also happens to be a Silver Cross Hospital volunteer, noticed an uncomfortable ache in his back. When it persisted for more than a week, he made a visit to the hospital’s emergency department.
