Joliet is home to Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center (PSJMC), a leading-edge hospital providing university-level comprehensive health services and programs. It is the only hospital in the entire county named recently to the prestigious list of “Top Hospitals” in the Chicagoland area by Chicago Magazine, and is the flagship hospital of the newly formed Presence Health, the largest Catholic health system in Illinois.

Through a partnership with the University of Illinois at Chicago, the world-class Neuroscience Institute at PSJMC is the only provider of neurological services in the region and is dedicated as a Primary Stroke Center. The area’s only open-heart surgery program is found at PSJMC’s Heart Center, offering patients an advanced level of cardiac care close to home.

PSJMC, a Level II Trauma Center, provides unmatched services through the Sister Theresa Cancer Care Center, Pediatric ICU and the region’s only dedicated Children’s Emergency Department, as well as many other centers of excellence. The Medical Center was recently honored with an “A” Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group; recognizing outstanding performance in preventing medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections.

The 480-bed Medical Center features a new eight-story patient tower with all-private patient rooms, expanded critical care units and a dedicated neuroscience floor.


Silver Cross Hospital is a highly reputable medical provider in the region, garnering recognition as a 100 Top Hospital (Thomson Reuters Healthcare) seven years in a row. Silver Cross recently unveiled a brand new replacement hospital just three miles from its old campus in Joliet. The $400 million facility opened its doors to the public on February 26, 2012, after a large-scale, 3.5-year construction project.

The state-of-the-art, all-private bed medical center is a testament to Silver Cross’ mission to provide quality healthcare to the region for the next 100 years. The improved facility enhances quality, safety and service within an environment designed for future technology. And with the new facilities come stronger partnerships with reputable resources such as Children’s Memorial Hospital, the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Also located on campus is the new Cancer Center – a partnership with the University of Chicago Medical Center – and two medical service pavilions. Pavilion A houses a range of specialty services, including the Infusion Center, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Diabetes Center, Renal Center and Wound Health & Treatment Center. Pavilion B also hosts various primary and specialty care offices, as well as the modern Center for Women’s Health and the Children’s Memorial Outpatient Center.


Joliet is committed to serving residents of all generations, including its growing senior population. The Senior Services Center of Will County is an integral resource for area seniors, as it offers a range of social services, case coordination, an ombudsmen program, as well as activities and informational programs and health and nutrition services. More than 50,000 people a year utilize the center’s programs and services, which are offered at various locations throughout Will County.
