Delnor Hospital is a leader in providing comprehensive, cutting-edge medicine within a culture that fosters some of the highest patient-, physician- and employee-satisfaction scores in the nation. Delnor is among just 6 percent of U.S. hospitals to achieve Magnet designation —the American Nurses’ Association’s highest honor for nursing excellence. The hospital also recently became the first medical facility in Illinois to be named a Planetree hospital for providing outstanding patient-centered care.

In 2008, the 159-bed, acute-care hospital opened the largest addition in its history. The three-story, 100,000-square-foot expansion enabled Delnor to add 31 spacious and home-like private patient rooms.

As a Level II Trauma Center and Emergency Department approved for pediatrics, Delnor’s state-of-the-art Emergency Department offers the expertise and resources to treat people of all ages with severe or life- threatening illnesses and injuries. Connected directly to the Emergency Department is Delnor’s dedicated Cardiac Catheterization Lab, which uses advanced technology to help physicians evaluate and treat critical cardiac blockages quickly and accurately while exposing patients to less radiation.

Delnor’s NewLife® Maternity Center provides all families with a private suite offering all the amenities of a fine hotel. The Level II with Extended Capabilities Nursery is equipped to care for low birth weight infants, premature infants and infants on ventilators. Delnor’s neonatalogists are available 24 hours a day. The center also offers maternal-fetal medicine services for women experiencing high-risk pregnancies, including multiple births, and 24-hour obstetric physician coverage in the event of an emergency.

The hospital’s beautifully appointed Center for Breast Health offers digital mammography, the most technologically advanced equipment for the early detection of breast abnormalities.

Delnor’s Community Health and Outreach Department provides the most comprehensive array of educational programs, classes and screenings of any hospital in the Fox Valley.

The hospital’s 400-plus member Medical Staff features physicians representing more than 70 specialties and subspecialties. Many are recognized leaders in their field.

Delnor Hospital is part of DelnorHealth System, which provides a broad range of healthcare, wellness and other services for the community. Other components of the system include Tri-Cities Surgery Center, Tri-Cities Dialysis, the Raymond G. Scott Cancer Care Center, the Delnor Health & Wellness Center, the LivingWell Cancer Resource Center, and Delnor Glen Senior Living (assisted-living facility and townhomes).

VALLEY AMBULATORY SURGERY CENTER
2210 Dean St. • St. Charles
(630) 584-9800 • www.valleyambulatory.com

Valley Ambulatory Surgery Center is uniquely qualified to address the needs of its patients. VASC has over 160 area surgeons on staff and furnishes surgical services for more than 1,000 different procedures for both outpatient and more complex surgeries, which require a stay at Valley Medical Inn. VASC provides surgical services in Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Ear/Nose/Throat, General Surgery, Podiatry, Urology, Pediatric Surgery, Gastroenterology, Orthopedic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery, Oral Surgery and Dentistry.

The rapid growth of VASC is partly due to the advances in medicine. Now, most surgical procedures are performed in an outpatient setting for about half the cost. But VASC also grew and prospered because of the beliefs that its founding members had about what healthcare should be. At VASC each patient is treated in a professional and courteous manner, and the staff is dedicated to excellence in patient care.

Since Valley Ambulatory Surgery Center is committed to quality medical care, it is consistently utilized as a training forum to introduce advanced technology and procedures to area surgeons on staff. VASC enjoys an excellent reputation among doctors and patients alike, receiving consistently high remarks from patient satisfaction surveys. Arthur Anderson awarded Valley Ambulatory Surgery Center and Valley Medical Inn its Best Practices Award in 1998 in the “Exceeding Customer Expectations” category.

Valley Medical Inn, a post-surgical recovery care center adjacent to Valley Ambulatory Surgery Center, was opened in 1997. This nine-bed facility offers an alternative to hospitalization for patients needing additional time to recover from surgery. Stays can be as short as 23 hours or as long as 72 hours. The “Bed and Breakfast” atmosphere of VMI provides the patient with the best quality medical care in a more relaxed environment.

Private nursing care, catered meals and hotel- quality amenities serve to reduce the patient’s stress and speed recovery.
