Date:8/14/2014

WINFIELD, Ill., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Cadence Health Foundation announced today that it is funding more than $3.1 million in new equipment, system upgrades and expansion projects at Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) and Delnor Hospital. The Foundation has partnered with generous individuals and corporations to raise the funding to enhance the offerings and services of Cadence Health.

"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, 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 vital system projects, including the Ronald McDonald House® near CDH.  The facility, which is scheduled to open February 14, 2015, will be the first Ronald McDonald House® in Chicago's western suburbs. The house will feature approximately 12 private bedrooms and bathrooms, along with a communal living room, kitchen, dining room, recreational spaces, and laundry facilities.

The Foundation seeks philanthropic gifts to advance excellent health care for people in the communities served by CDH, Delnor and other Cadence Health affiliates, including CNS Home Health & Hospice, Delnor Glen, HomeCare Physicians and LivingWell Cancer Resource Center.
