Silver Cross recently became aware of a potential data security incident at one of our website management vendors that could have affected information provided by patients and others through forms on our website.  We take very seriously our responsibility to keep our patients’ information secure, and have taken steps to work with the vendor to investigate this matter and to improve data security practices.  We apologize for any concern that this matter may cause.

Silver Cross Hospital is pleased to announce Vincent Pryor has been named Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer (CFO) effective September 11, 2017.

MACI procedure is more efficient and requires less time in operating room than previous cartilage replacement surgery 

At 20 years old, Taylor Munn didn’t think knee surgery would be in her near future. After dislocating her knee cap in September 2015, surgery was eventually her only option. Munn, who lives in Manhattan, eventually became the first patient at Silver Cross Hospital to undergo the MACI (matrix-induced autologous cultured chondrocytes on porcine collagen membrane) procedure. The new procedure is an evolution on the previous ACI (autologous cultured chondrocytes on porcine collagen membrane procedure), but is more efficient.

In honor of National Breastfeeding Month and World Breastfeeding Week, Silver Cross Hospital Lactation Consultants and the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) raised awareness for breastfeeding during the annual World Breastfeeding Week Celebration. An informative display table, refreshments, and prizes were available on August 3 in the Birthing Center Lobby at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox. Silver Cross Hospital’s International Board Certified Lactation Consultants answered questions and provided information to hospital visitors and staff members who visited the display.

Along with the Silver Cross Medical Staff, the hospital’s volunteer organizations, Childerguild, the Advisory Board, and the Will County Union of King’s Daughters and Sons, recently honored Paul Pawlak for his 27 years of service as President and CEO by creating the Paul Pawlak Scholarship to fund the continuing education of Silver Cross Hospital’s employees.
