Lists Hospitals in Illinois

Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) is an independent hospital system located throughout DuPage County, Illinois. Its primary facility is a 361-bed hospital located in Winfield, Illinois. The hospital is the focal point of a network of health services that includes a 50-physician medical group, a home health care agency, an occupational health center, and about half a dozen urgent care centers. CDH became one of the first hospitals in the Chicago area to perform open-heart surgery on a beating heart,[3] and is currently ranked 8th out of Chicago Hospitals.[4]

History[edit]

The Central DuPage Hospital Association was established in 1958 when citizens from Glen Ellyn, Lombard, Wheaton, Warrenville, Winfield and West Chicago banded together to restore a sanitarium located on the hospital's current primary site. After an extensive million-dollar renovation project, Central DuPage Hospital opened on September 16, 1964 with 113 beds and 66 physicians. The hospital saw much change throughout the 1970s, with the opening of a 120-bed pavilion on December 13, 1970, small additions in 1971 and 1972, and a five-story 112-bed patient tower in 1976.[5]

The hospital expanded its capabilities throughout the 1980s and 1990s. In the 2000s, CDH was rated as one of the 100 Top Hospitals in the United States five years in a row by Thomson, a national business information company.[citation needed]
