Grayslake and surrounding communities are fortunate to have superlative health care opportunities within and just outside of the village.
Northwestern Medicine Grayslake Outpatient Center
The Northwestern Medicine Grayslake Outpatient Center is a godsend to people living and working in Grayslake and neighboring communities who need to be seen by a physician, receive treatment, therapy or a diagnosis or who have an emergency arise. Medical attention is only a short drive away.
The 275,000-square-foot “hospital without in-patient space” at 1475 E. Belvidere Rd. has been growing and expanding steadily since it first opened in 2004, according to Paul Williams, director of operations and administrator for Northwestern Medicine Grayslake.
The facility features a free-standing emergency department that accepts ambulances; physician offices; outpatient cardiology testing; a fully-functional outpatient laboratory; rehabilitation services including audiology testing and physical, occupational and speech therapies; an ambulatory surgery center; a comprehensive cancer center that offers radiation therapy and chemotherapy infusion treatments; and a full radiology center offering MRIs, CT scans, diagnostic radiology, ultrasound, digital mammography and much more.
The ambulatory surgery center features four operating suites with the same state-of-the-art technology seen at Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital. There are also three pre- and post-operative rooms, six recovery bays and an eight-bed observation area, as well as two private consultation rooms.
In 2017 the Northwestern Medicine Grayslake facility also opened a multi-specialty clinic in the 76,000-square-foot Pavilion C building that is now “home” to physicians representing over 20 different specialties ranging from endocrinology to cardiology, pulmonology, orthopedics, vision care, neurosciences, oncology, internal medicine and family medicine. The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago also maintains a pediatrics practice in the building. This is also the location of the physical, occupational and speech pathology services.
Northwestern Medicine is also in the process of expanding the Grayslake facility’s cancer center to meet a growing need. They are adding two private infusion bays and four semi-private infusion bays, bringing the total to 14 infusion bays (four of which are private), Williams said.
The facility’s café, which overlooks the healing garden, has also been recently expanded and modernized. It now has additional seating and new menu items.
“Establishing this facility northwest of Lake Forest Hospital was an incredibly smart move back in 2004. It makes access to Northwestern Medicine care so much easier for our patients who don’t want to routinely travel to Lake Forest for care. Northwestern Medicine has an incredible asset here in Grayslake which continues to grow,” Williams said.
In addition, the physicians and staff members of Northwestern Medicine Grayslake reach out to community residents through their annual Children’s and Families’ Health and Safety Fair, held each June, and through a variety of support groups hosted on the campus.
