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.

Funding Priorities

Condell Medical Center’s Cancer Center provides the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment options for patients diagnosed with cancer. We are committed to providing cancer patients with the most advanced radiation, infusion, and supporting treatments available, delivered with a “whole person” approach to patient care. Your gift will help us purchase state-of-art technology, expand our services and elevate patient care.

Condell Medical Center’s expansive state-of-the-art Emergency Department (ED) has been designed to provide the highest standards of life-saving care as Lake County’s only Level I Trauma Center, Pediatric ED, and first Accredited Chest Pain Center. Your gift will help ensure our caregivers have the latest technology, education and support services to meet the needs of the community.

Condell Medical Center is a community treasure. Since 1928, it has served the health care needs of the Libertyville area. By creating the Enduring Excellence Endowment, we can continue the Condell tradition of excellence by providing resources to meet the hospital’s special needs as identified by the hospital president. Improving access to care, supporting clinical services, increasing the efficiency of support operations, and updating equipment, as well as maintaining and improving facilities are all examples of how the funds may be used.

Advocate Heart Institute at Condell Medical Center offers high-quality, comprehensive heart and cardiovascular care. With the help of philanthropy, we can provide the most sophisticated diagnostic, imaging and treatment technology.

Advocate Condell Medical Center has the only Level 1 Trauma Center in Lake County. Our expansion will increase the number of beds in our Intensive Care Unit from 17 to 32, allowing us to care for even more people in our community. Your gift will provide training for team members, state-of-the-art equipment and enhanced patient amenities.

Condell Medical Center’s nurses treat patients as individuals, skillfully and compassionately. The Magnet: Excellence in Nursing Fund helps our nurses enhance standards of care and build knowledge through ongoing education and professional development, which allows us to continue our efforts to improve patient care. Charitable support helps cover the cost of specialized skills training, travel to conferences and required classes for advanced degrees.

At Condell Medical Center, our board-certified neurosurgeons, neurologists, pain management specialists and primary care physicians work closely together to offer evidence-based treatment for the brain and the spine. We treat the most complex neurological conditions using today’s most advanced technology. Charitable gifts support equipment, caregiver and patient needs.

With community support we can expand and enhance our women and infant services to increase safety, comfort, privacy, convenience and peace of mind. The renovation of our Birthing Center will allow us to care for more moms and their babies, including those who face significant medical challenges.
