advocate sherman hospital Inspiring medicine. Changing lives.

Discover why Advocate Sherman Hospital is more than a community hospital. It's healthcare reinvented.


Each specialty is designed for the exact clinical and human needs of the patients we serve.

Advocate Sherman Hospital Regional Heart Center

With a team of nearly 50 cardiologists, we have over 35 years of experience with open heart procedures and all forms of cardiac care. We've also completed more procedures than many large university hospitals in Chicago. Our patients get timely diagnostics and life-saving treatment as well as comprehensive rehabilitation.

Advanced Chest Pain Accreditation

In addition to our array of Cardiovascular services, Advocate Sherman Hospital is also an accredited Chest Pain Center. An accredited chest pain center with PCI means that a hospital has dedicated interventional cardiologists, and cardiology and emergency personnel trained in rapid response and treatment of heart attacks, which ensures reduced heart muscle damage and saves lives. The accreditation is only granted to hospitals that closely follow the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association’s recommendations to improve and save lives.

The Center for Cancer Care at Advocate Sherman Hospital

Our center offers the latest cancer treatments and state-of-the-art technology, all delivered by compassionate staff in an environment custom-designed for healing. With radiation oncology delivered by the University of Chicago Medical Center faculty physicians and staff and our partnership with the American Cancer Society for unique support services, patients can access world-class care in their own community.

Center for Advanced Liver & Pancreatic Care

Led by renowned liver and pancreatic surgeon Dr. John Brems, the Center for Advanced Liver & Pancreatic Care provides each patient with access to specialized care for the treatment of a wide range of liver and pancreatic diseases that typically were only treated at academic medical centers. Located in the Center for Cancer Care, it also offers coordination of care in one location from a multi-disciplinary team.

Certified Primary Stroke Center

Our Stroke Center is certified by the Joint Commission. Advocate Sherman Hospital has implemented Code BAT (Brain Attack Team), a rapid response team of trained clinicians to ensure stroke patients receive timely and expert care.

Emergency Department

Our ED is a testament to "the patient comes first." Registration is done via computer at the bedside, significantly reducing wait times. Advocate Sherman Hospital's ED utilizes Rapid Medical Evaluation (RME) to minimize your waiting time. You will be checked in, triaged, and will receive an initial medical screening exam by a physician assistant, nurse practitioner or physician upon arrival.

Advocate Sherman Hospital's Center for Women's Health

The Advocate Sherman Hospital's Center for Women's Health is one of the most advanced facilities for Breast Health in the region. Women get a full work-up in one location. This includes screening and diagnostic exams, on-site board-certified radiologists, same-day results, outpatient stereotactic and core biopsy procedures and comprehensive patient education. All guided by a nurse navigator who helps to coordinate your care every step of the way. Plus, all technologists are ARRT registered in mammography.

Birthing Center

The Advocate Sherman Hospital Birthing Center offers personalized support and education throughout pregnancy, delivery and recovery. We allow mothers plenty of time to bond with their infants; our “No Separation” policy relieves mothers and babies of the stress of separation while providing complete post-natal education and support.

An environment like no other.

Advocate Sherman Hospital brings nature inside with beautiful colors and graphics that illustrate our promise to deliver a comforting, healing place where quality clinical care and attention to human and lifestyle needs get equal attention. Named the 5th most beautiful hospital in 2010, the setting redefines what a hospital should feel like.

Smart Design

The new hospital features bigger spaces and unmatched efficiency. All patient rooms are private. And each has its own bath and shower as well as sleeping accommodations for a family member. Visitors enjoy free, high-speed wireless access anywhere in the hospital.


Patients can choose their menus and meal times. We offer a restaurant-style menu and guests eat at our new food court with more choices, cooked-to-order dishes and a stunning outdoor patio overlooking the lake.

Geothermal Lake

We save an estimated $1 million a year by heating and cooling our entire facility with energy generated from our geothermal lake. Over-sized windows provide an "Ah" moment for patients and guests. There is also a 3/4 mile walking path around the lake, which is also a designated American Heart Association walking path. People who use these designated paths can track walking progress on the AHA website.
