Silver Cross Hospital

The way you should be treated.™

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!  

Flu – Visitor Restrictions

Due to the increased incidence of influenza (flu) activity in Illinois, 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 (Maternal Siblings Exception)
  • Limit of two (2) visitors per room

On the Mother/Baby Unit – healthy siblings, under the age of 18, may visit but must wear a mask for the duration of their visit

  • 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.

On November 17, 518 friends of Silver Cross Hospital attended the 90th Annual Childerguild Ball at the Odyssey Country Club in Tinley Park and enjoyed wonderful food and dancing. The premiere event of the holiday season – An Evening in Casablanca – raised $270,000 to support women and children’s services at Silver Cross Hospital.

The Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board today granted unanimous approval to Silver Cross Hospital to establish an open heart surgery program on its New Lenox campus. The new program will be operational as early as spring 2019.
