Antone recently celebrated her 18th anniversary at Silver Cross and over these years has made many, many significant contributions to the hospital. 

A Registered Professional Nurse by training, she was initially recruited to lead the development of Silver Cross’s cardiac service line and was instrumental in setting up the first outpatient cardiac catheterization lab with Heartland Cardiology. She also had responsibility for Diagnostic Imaging and worked closely with the radiologists in expanding the hospital’s capabilities, including the design and implementation of the Center for Women’s Health.  

“Marybeth worked with other leadership team members to plan and execute the move to the new hospital campus in 2012 and the implementation of our patient-centered care model,” said Ruth Colby, Silver Cross President and CEO. 

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Antone raised her hand to develop and lead the Procedural Care Unit (PCU), which has grown significantly over the years. New to surgery at the time, she worked with her team to introduce the first DaVinci Robot just two months after the move. 

“The robotics program has flourished under her leadership and Silver Cross Hospital now has bragging rights as the busiest robotic program in the Chicagoland area,” Colby added. “Marybeth is a highly sought-after speaker on the topic of robotics at the national level and uses these speaking engagements as an opportunity to spotlight not only our robotics program but our hospital overall.”  

Antone has led the development of other significant clinical programs on the PCU over the past 10 years, including Advanced Endo, Interventional Radiology, Cardiology and Endovascular Neurology services. Under Antone’s leadership, Silver Cross successfully launched an open-heart surgery program in 2019 with Cardiovascular Thoracic Surgeon Dr. Pat Pappas and his team which has exceeded expectations. 

In addition, Antone took on responsibility for Silver Cross’s Laboratory a year ago and has been instrumental in expanding the laboratory’s capabilities. In her new role, her scope is expanding to include the Emergency Department and the Homer Glen Health Center.

Physicians on Silver Cross Hospital’s Medical Staff have expertise in their areas of practice to meet the needs of patients seeking their care. These physicians are independent practitioners on the Medical Staff and are not the agents or employees of Silver Cross Hospital. They treat patients based upon their independent medical judgment and they bill patients separately for their services.
