Funds raised will support the hospital’s new open heart and structural heart surgical program.

The Silver Cross Foundation raised $195,195 at its 28th Annual Charity Golf Classic June 24 at Crystal Tree Country Club in Orland Park, with 180 golfers coming out to support Silver Cross Hospital.

Proceeds from the event will help advance heart care services at Silver Cross, which includes establishing an open heart and structural heart surgical program to treat life-threatening valve disorders and structural heart defects using minimally invasive technology.

Over the next two years, Silver Cross is investing $22 million to provide innovative, multi-specialty care for patients with advanced and complex coronary disease.

This includes adding two state-of-the-art operating rooms, a “hybrid room” equipped with advanced medical imaging devices to support minimally invasive surgery, two recovery rooms, two ICU rooms and 3D cardiac technology for an electrophysiology lab.

The new surgical services will be housed in a new 33,000-square-foot pavilion on the east side of the Silver Cross campus connecting to the hospital’s second-floor Procedural Care Unit (PCU).

In addition, a cardiac care unit will open on the first floor directly below the PCU to care for patients after heart surgery, and will be serviced with a dedicated elevator between the two units. The entire project will be completed by fall 2020.

The presenting sponsor for the event was Reed Construction.

Other sponsors donating $5,000 or more to support the hospital’s foundation included Advanced Midwest Radiology, AMR/Kurtz Ambulance, Block Electric, Capital Strategies, Cerner, Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgical Associates, Elite Ambulance, EM Strategies, First Midwest Bank, HSA Primecare and Premier Design + Build Group, Innovista Health Solutions, Lincolnway Community Bank, PFS Group, Silver Cross Medical Staff, Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital, and Sentinel Technologies.

The 29th annual Silver Cross Charity Golf Classic will be held June 29, 2020, at Crystal Tree Country Club.
