Services Offered

We provide a full spectrum of care for patients of all ages:

Cardiac Care

Saint Joseph Hospital is a cardiac-care leader in Chicago – and the nation. From primary care to specialty care, we have a proven record of clinical excellence. Many of our cardiologists are nationally recognized leaders and involved in research worldwide. This means patients have access to the latest clinical studies and medications. Getting patients back on track to feeling healthy and leading productive lives is our goal.

Neurointerventional Suite:

Our new Neurointerventional Suite gives us the capacity to perform complex, minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat a full array of brain disorders - including strokes in progress. The advanced technology can actually reverse the effects of a stroke as it is occurring - or at least minimize the devastating effects. Depending on the type of stroke and the time frame in which the patient arrives, the window of rescue is increased from 3 hours up to 8 hours following the onset of stroke symptoms.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minor incision. Major results. Saint Joseph Hospital is a proud leader in minimaly-invasive surgery for various gynecological and urological conditions using the most advanced technology available - the high definition da Vinci Si Surgical System.

Benefits of robotic surgery vs. traditional methods:

  • Greater surgical precision
  • Increased range of motion for the physician
  • Enhanced visualization for the physician
  • Improved access to hard to reach areas of the body

Only Chicago hospital to earn distinction; one of only nine in Illinois.

In November 2013 Presence Saint Joseph Hospital was named one of the nation’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals by Truven Health Analytics. Presence Saint Joseph Hospital is one of nine hospitals in Illinois to be so distinguished and is the only hospital in Chicago to make the list.

The Truven Health 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals study evaluates performance in key areas: risk-adjusted mortality, risk-adjusted complications, core measures (a group of measures that assess process of care), percentage of coronary bypass patients with internal mammary artery use, 30-day mortality rates, 30-day readmission rates, severity-adjusted average length of stay, and wage- and severity-adjusted average cost. The study is celebrating its 15th year and has been conducted annually since 1999.
