Healthcare

Valley West Community Hospital, including Woodward Hospital from 1935-1960 and Sandwich Community Hospital, which opened April 1960 and changed names in 1998, has been a part of the Fox Valley community for more than 70 years.

The $6 million Medical Office Building on the north side of the Valley West campus opened in March of 2008. The building is now home to several physician offices and hospital services including Cardiac Rehab, a Pain Management Clinic, a Diabetes Education Center, Outpatient Dialysis, a Diabetes Education Center and the Karen Bohr Sepaniak Community Room.

In the fall of 2008, Valley West Community Hospital completed construction of a building addition; the new addition is the second in the past six years. The $6.5 million project expanded surgical services, providing two more operating rooms, six day surgery rooms and a new recovery suite. Two new labor/delivery/ recovery/post-partum maternity suites were added to the birthing center, and more patient treatment areas were added to the Emergency Department.

In addition to facility upgrades, Valley West, with financial support from KishHealth System, invested in the community’s healthcare by recruiting a number of primary care physicians and specialists, who opened private practices in Sandwich, Somonauk, Plano and Yorkville. These efforts have made it easier for our residents to stay in the community for both their medical needs and hospital care.
