We partner with you to make your stay or visit as comfortable and uncomplicated as possible. That’s why generation after generation, families just like yours have depended on Silver Cross to care for their loved ones.

Proud History

Our commitment goes back to Thanksgiving Day in 1895 when the Will County Union of King’s Daughters and Sons opened the doors to a 33-bed hospital in Joliet named after their emblem - the Maltese cross. Their promise was to provide quality healthcare with compassion for the citizens of Will County and surrounding communities. More than a century later, Silver Cross Hospital remains true to that original promise.

Award-Winning Care

You’ll be glad to know that Silver Cross provides nationally recognized, award-winning care. In fact, Silver Cross was recognized as one of the nation’s 100 Top Hospitals in 2004 — an accomplishment that was repeated for seven years. And year after year, Silver Cross has been acknowledged as one of American’s Friendliest Hospitals because we treat patients the way they want to be treated.

Straight A’s for Safety

We have also been recognized with Straight A’s for our dedication to patient safety from The Leapfrog Group and as the Best Hospital, Best Emergency Room, Best Place to Have a Baby and Best Employers by our community. In 2017, Silver Cross received 5 Stars from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS).

Over the years, Silver Cross has developed an extensive ambulatory network throughout the region that includes five satellite facilities with physician offices and outpatient testing and physical therapy. Silver Cross also operates a 24/7 freestanding Emergency Care Center in Homer Glen and an Urgent Care center in Joliet.
