New dual balloon technology proven to provide more than twice the weight loss of diet and exercise alone

BMI Surgery at Silver Cross Hospital is the first in Illinois to offer the ReShape™ Integrated Dual Balloon System, an FDA approved, first-of-its-kind non-surgical weight loss procedure for people with mild to moderate obesity. ReShape provides a new option for adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 to 40 and a related health condition who haven’t succeeded at diet and exercise alone and do not want or qualify for bariatric surgery. 

Hospital Recognized at 2015 ISHMPR Pinnacle Awards Ceremony Oct. 22

New Lenox, IL (Nov. 11, 2015)—The Illinois Society for Healthcare Marketing and Public Relations (ISHMPR) honored marketing, public relations and communications professionals from across the state at its Annual Conference and Pinnacle Awards Presentation Oct. 22 at Brookfield Zoo.  Silver Cross Hospital received 8 Pinnacle Awards.  The Marketing Team also won three Gold awards in Creative Images/Healthcare Marketing Today’s 2015 national Aster Awards competition earlier this year.  

Along with 2,000 men and women of all ages wearing a variety of pink apparel, the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health employees and breast cancer patients and their family members participated in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K (3.1. mile) walk at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet on September 26, 2015. 

While experiencing an unusual body rash, Joliet resident Pam Alexander discovered a lump in her breast while applying lotion. She immediately scheduled a mammogram and biopsy which confirmed that she had a malignant tumor in her left breast.  “I am so grateful that I acted quickly and was able to receive all of my specialized care so close to home at one location on Silver Cross Hospital’s campus in New Lenox,” said 52-year-old Pam Alexander. “As a result of the cutting-edge treatment that I received, I’m thrilled to report that I’m cancer-free for one year!” 

Since her grandparents and parents had heart disease, Manhattan resident Terri Dobson often wondered if she too would suffer from the same fate. With her family health history in mind, she was motivated to get a Baseline Cardiac Assessment at Silver Cross Hospital. “I knew for years I should get my heart checked based on the history of heart disease in my family, but when I learned about Silver Cross’ baseline cardiac risk assessment for only $40, I had no excuse not to get my heart checked out,” said 57 year-old Dobson. “I’m so grateful to the compassionate nurses who calmly talked me through the test and helped me relax. Thanks to having the cardiac screening, I now have peace of mind knowing my heart health.”
