Will County's newest full-service hospital will begin meeting the

healthcare needs of the community and beyond on Monday

BOLINGBROOK, Ill., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The first new hospital in Illinois in more than 25 years will officially open its doors on Monday, January 14. After three years of construction, Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital received glowing clinical and facility reviews from the Illinois Department of Public Health and is set to begin providing much-needed medical care to residents of the Will County region and beyond.

The new 138-bed hospital will include 106 medical/surgical beds, 20 obstetric beds and 12 intensive care beds, along with a Level II trauma center. Patient rooms will include the latest amenities such as sleeper sofas for overnight family stays, flat screen TVs, wireless Internet access and room service. The 300,000 square-foot hospital will be one of the area's largest employers and is intended to meet the growing healthcare needs of the communities in and around Will County.

"We are looking forward to treating our very first patient on Monday," said Isaac Palmer, Chief Executive Officer of Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. "We are excited for the community to finally get a chance to see what we have to offer from the state-of-the-art medical equipment to the amenities in the private patient rooms."

Nearly 2,000 area residents took advantage of a sneak peak inside the state-of the-art facility at a community celebration on Sunday, November 18, 2007.

The hospital will employ approximately 600 area residents including management positions, nurses and other clinical and support staff. The architectural design combined with the latest medical advances and the soothing patient amenities reflect the whole-person mission for which Adventist Midwest Health is known.

"It is a privilege for Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital to be providing the communities we serve needed medical care, close to home. Our spectacular team of physicians, nurses and caregivers is focused on providing better healing and wellness for the region," said Palmer. "By defining healthcare from the viewpoint of the patient, we hope to change the way people think about hospitals."
