The Chicago Healthcare Executive’s Forum recently shined the spotlight on the Silver Cross Hospital emergency department, presenting the hospital with its Leadership in Innovation Award at the Soldier Field United Club. The award recognizes a health care team that has inspired leadership, change, and advancement in the Chicago area health care community.

Since 2017, the Silver Cross Hospital emergency department has implemented over 20+ process improvement efforts with the support of the hospital’s administration and Emergency Department medical staff.

Together, this unstoppable team has transformed processes, shortened the window of time it takes for a patient to be seen by a provider and raised patient satisfaction scores.

Patients are treated in private rooms with ample space for family members. To help expedite care, lab and imaging services are conveniently located nearby.

The Silver Cross Emergency Department is designated as a Level II Trauma Center, Primary Stroke Center, and certified through IDPH as an Emergency Department approved for pediatrics.
