Foundation commits $3.1M to hospital upgrades

The Cadence Health Foundation recently granted more than $3.1 million in funding for new equipment, system upgrades and expansion projects at Central DuPage Hospital and Delnor Hospital, according to a press release.

“Without the generosity of thousands of donors each and every year, we would not be in this fortunate position to be able to support a variety of vital projects at Central DuPage Hospital and Delnor Hospital,” said Chris Hensley, president of the Cadence Health Foundation. “We are committed to reinvesting in our communities to bring outstanding, compassionate care closer to home.”

A highlight of projects being funded include:

Purchase of two hyper-slice CT scanners that will enable physicians to view high resolution images. Both hospitals will feature a hyper-scanner;

Expansion of Delnor’s Intensive and Immediate Care Units;

Upgrades to the da Vinci Surgical system at Delnor;

Enhanced surgical and imaging navigation system for Cadence Health Neurosciences.

In addition to $3.1 million in funding for the system’s two hospitals, the foundation also supports a variety of other projects, including the Ronald McDonald House near Central DuPage Hospital. The facility, which is scheduled to open Feb. 14, will be the first Ronald McDonald House in Chicago’s western suburbs. The house will feature about 12 private bedrooms and bathrooms, along with a communal living room, kitchen, dining room, recreational spaces and laundry facilities.

Cadence Health was formed in March 2011 as a result of the merger between Central DuPage Health System based in Winfield and Delnor Community Health System based in Geneva.

CDH and Delnor maintain affiliations with Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for pediatric specialty care and Cleveland Clinic for cardiac surgery, adult medical oncology, and cardiology services.
