The next few years the weather of the healthcare industry will be dominated by pervasive change. We’ve invited local experts to discuss the future of healthcare in the next few years.
Our guest panel includes:
– Annette Kenney of Edward-Elmhurst Health
– Dr. Kevin Most of Northwestern Medicine & Central DuPage Hospital
– Patrick Gallagher of the Illinois Hospital Association
Edward-Elmhurst Health is one of the larger integrated health systems in Illinois. The system was created by the merger of Edward Hospital and Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare in 2013.
Our goal is to make every moment you spend at Edward Hospital as comfortable and stress-free as possible. This mindset dates back to 1991, when Edward became the first hospital in Illinois to offer all private rooms. In the years since, we’ve introduced more innovations in comfort, like space for family to spend the night, peaceful healing gardens, and a pediatric ER designed with a fun nautical theme.
