Boy-Head BandagedWhy Choose Silver Cross for Urgent Care?

Expert Care

You can’t plan for the unexpected, which is why Silver Cross offers quick, convenient medical care for those times when you can’t get in to see your doctor. Or maybe you don’t have a regular health care provider? Whatever the circumstance, you’ll be cared for by a licensed clinical practitioner under the supervision of a board-certified emergency care physician with EM Strategies*. That’s the same medical group that cares for patients at Silver Cross Hospital’s Emergency Department in New Lenox and the Silver Cross Emergency Care Center in Homer Glen.
