Vista Health System operates a number of high-quality medical facilities within the Lake County communities of Waukegan, Gurnee and Lindenhurst. The system is composed of two hospital campuses that have been serving the county for nearly a century, along with a freestanding same-day surgery and treatment center and several sites for imaging and patient therapy.

NorthShore University HealthSystem (formerly Evanston Northwestern Healthcare) manages a network of four hospitals, including Highland Park Hospital. The 239-bed facility—the site of the first open heart surgery in the county—boasts a renovated emergency room and a modern Ambulatory Care Center.

Since its beginnings more than 100 years ago, Lake Forest Hospital has grown into a 215-bed community hospital, equipped with its main campus in Lake Forest, the Grayslake Outpatient & Acute Care Center and several further facilities in Lindenhurst, Gurnee, Libertyville and Vernon Hills.

Advocate Health Care has been recognized as one of the top 10 systems in the U.S. The extensive system operates the Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington. The hospital’s Level II Trauma Center and a state-of-the-art Birth Center are complemented by a nationally recognized cancer program, a modern health and fitness center, adult and adolescent behavioral health programs and a long list of outpatient services.

Advocate Condell Medical Center, located in Libertyville, also serves the Lake County population. The hospital houses an ultra-modern Level II Trauma Center and one of the busiest Emergency Departments in the county. The Emergency Department recently underwent an expansion, which incorporated the first and only Pediatric Emergency Department in the county. Condell also houses the Howard H. Green, Jr. ICU (opened in January 2003), an excellent Women’s Center and first-rate neurosurgery and cardiovascular services. In addition to the main hospital campus, the network operates four convenient immediate care facilities throughout Lake County, all of which offer walk-in medical care, along with lab, X-ray, occupational health services and on-site physician offices.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has an established facility in Zion. The Midwestern Regional Medical Center houses an outstanding integrated cancer care program featuring a variety of world-class cancer treatment services, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery, along with a number of complementary and alternative treatment options.

Supplementing these exceptional hospitals is a large number of physician offices, clinics and specialists. Strategically located throughout the county to better serve the area’s patient base, many of these resources are affiliated with some of Chicago’s leading healthcare systems and teaching universities.
