Advocate Condell Medical Center

Condell Medical Center opened in 1928 after Lake County residents followed Dorothy Condell’s lead and made the charitable gifts necessary to build a 25-bed hospital for their community. That tradition of philanthropy has served our area well ever since.

Now a Level I Trauma Center and a Top 100 Hospital, Condell Medical Center continues to grow thanks to the generosity of its donors. Philanthropy has helped the hospital build new facilities, acquire advanced technology, create innovative programs and win national awards. 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.
