The Advisory Board raises funds for Silver Cross Hospital by operating the Encore Shop and is located in Joliet on Walnut Street just north of the former Silver Cross Hospital Emergency Department. Items available for purchase will include seasonal decorations, adult and children’s seasonal clothing, toys, household items, books, and more.
Over the past 10 years, the Advisory Board has donated more than $572, 0000 to Silver Cross for the purchase of X-ray equipment for the Emergency Department, ICU beds, laptop computers for Home Health nurses, dialysis and mammography equipment, surgery carts and instruments, cardiac software, and a new pick-up truck used to maintain the grounds of the hospital campus. The group recently completed a $75,000 pledge to purchase the water feature in the Dralle Serenity Garden outside the new Silver Cross Replacement Hospital which opened Feb. 26, 2012.
Donations are welcome. For more information, call Volunteers Services at Silver Cross Hospital at (815) 300-7117.
