Celebrating its 100th year in 2018, Highland Park Hospital’s massive modernization project is nearly complete. It includes an updated surgical pavilion offering the latest technology and leading-edge operating rooms. Construction of the new Women’s Hospital was completed in 2017, providing the only dedicated Labor, Delivery and Post-Partum Unit in Lake County. Mothers stay in the same room from the time they arrive until they are discharged. The unit features state-of-the-art equipment, private rooms with spa amenities and a dedicated entrance and atrium lobby.
The hospital is the site of the first open-heart surgery in Lake County, and continues to provide a full range of cardiac diagnosis and intervention services. Highland Park Hospital's Kellogg Cancer Center offers the most comprehensive subspecialty care in the northern suburbs and also is a Joint Commission-certified Primary Stroke Center—providing an acute stroke team 24/7 for rapid diagnosis and treatment. The hospital’s Emergency Department also is the region's "pod" hospital for disaster-response activities across Lake County.
