Growing Quality Healthcare
A little over a year ago, we were just finishing moving patients from our previous location on Berteau Avenue to our new campus, which has recently been voted as the fifth most beautiful hospital in America. It’s amazing how quickly a year goes by – and what a year it’s been.
Although the development of our new Main Campus is a significant achievement in our mission to provide the highest quality care to our patients, this facility is simply the roots of Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare (EMHC). Every day, EMHC continues to grow to better serve the surrounding communities. On August 22, we will be opening a brand new medical facility in Addison, which will feature immediate care, laboratory, X-Ray services. The Addison location will be home to many physician offices, who will continue to provide state-of-the-art care to the populous Addison community.
We continue to grow and enhance our technology here at EMHC. Through the use of our da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, fondly named SURgio, we have performed more than 100 minimally invasive surgical procedures. EMHC is the first hospital in DuPage County to perform single-site robotic surgery procedure.
At the end of August, we will break ground on our new Cancer Center that will be located at our Main Campus. The Cancer Center will provide a more convenient and positive experience for patients and their caregivers by combining medical oncology with an infusion center, radiation oncology and high-tech CyberKnife.
EMHC is deeply rooted in the Elmhurst community and we are excited to grow and provide even more care to our patients and their families in the years to come.
