Silver Cross Foundation

As the not-for-profit, 501c3, fundraising arm for Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, IL, the Silver Cross Foundation exists to develop all forms of philanthropic support for the healthcare services provided by the hospital. This includes raising funds:

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.
