Advocate South Suburban Hospital
Advocate South Suburban Hospital has served the community and responded to local needs for nearly 70 years. And through the years, the community has responded in return—providing the funds needed to improve facilities and establish new programs. Today South Suburban Hospital is known for delivering advanced care close to home, while helping local residents stay healthy through screenings, support groups and senior services.
Generous donors have helped the hospital build new facilities, acquire advanced technology, create innovative programs and earn national recognition. The facts speak for themselves. Now, in an era of declining reimbursements and increasing health needs, charitable gifts are more important than ever in ensuring local access to the very best care.
