Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

Robert Permut, retired psychiatrist, didn’t have the classic symptoms of acid reflux, but he ended up being an ideal candidate for a new procedure offered at Silver Cross Hospital. It started almost eight years ago in 2010 when he had a persistent cough that didn’t seem to go away.

The Will County Union of King’s Daughters and Sons gave the Silver Cross Foundation $7,548 to support the hospital’s acute kidney dialysis services at its annual meeting May 5. The funds will be used to purchase a mobile peritoneal dialysis cart, vein visualization system, Doppler ultrasound equipment, and three vital sign machines to safely care for Silver Cross Hospital’s inpatient dialysis patients.  

Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox recently honored volunteers at its annual recognition luncheon held at the Bolingbrook Golf Club in Bolingbrook. With four volunteer organizations: Advisory Board (Encore Resale Shop), Childerguild (Gift Shop) and The Will County Union of King’s Daughters and Sons (founders of Silver Cross) and inservice volunteers, more than 700 area residents donate their time and talents to raise funds for the hospital and assist in daily operations. Over the last year, they have given 66,000 hours of service and raised over $396,000 for the Silver Cross Foundation.

The Silver Cross Healthy Community Commission has been very busy the last few months, awarding $45,836 in grants to four community organizations in the areas of education and workforce development.

Silver Cross Hospital’s community benefit totaled over $39 million in fiscal year (FY) 2017 (Oct. 1, 2016-Sept. 30, 2017). Included in the hospital’s community benefit was more than $5.1 million in charity care (at cost) in which Silver Cross does not expect payment from patients.  Additionally, more than $4.1 million in uncompensated services was provided through the government’s Medicaid program.
