giving tuesdayJoin with us on #GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is an international day of charitable giving marking the beginning of the holiday season on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. And rightfully so, as it was Thanksgiving Day 1895, when a group of caring individuals known as the Will County Union of King’s Daughters and Sons gave a magnanimous gift to the community – Silver Cross Hospital.

They made a promise nearly 125 years ago that hospital care would be available nearby. And in 2012, that commitment was renewed when the community – generous donors like YOU, came together once again to lend their support for a much needed replacement hospital in nearby New Lenox. A hospital that has since grown in both size and stature, yet always making sure area residents continue to have access to quality healthcare close to home.

Meeting the Needs of our Community

In the spirit of giving, we'd like to share just a few examples of how Silver Cross has listened to the needs of our community and responded with what we hope you agree are some amazing gifts to keep you and your family in good health:

  • Expanded partnerships with renowned medical specialists with Lurie Children’s Hospital, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, University of Chicago Medicine Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Loyola Medicine for Neurosciences
  • 100-bed Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital – increasing mental health and substance abuse treatment services 5-fold on our campus from just a year ago
  • New Open Heart and Structural Heart Surgical Program so patients don’t have to leave Silver Cross
  • Easy access to emergency care with 24/7 ERs in New Lenox and Homer Glen, and urgent care on the west side of Joliet and another facility opening on the Silver Cross campus in spring 2020
