Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) is a 390-bed hospital in Winfield, Illinois. It is one of seven hospitals operated by Northwestern Medicine. CDH became one of the first hospitals in the Chicago area to perform open-heart surgery on a beating heart,[3] and is ranked 5th among Illinois hospitals in the current ranking by 2017-18 U.S. News Best Hospitals Honor Roll.[4]


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 facility and campus continued to expand in the decades that followed, with much of the original structure eventually reused or demolished, culminating in the construction of a new $232 million five-story bed tower with 202 private rooms in 2011.[6]

In 2011, Central DuPage Health (the successor parent to the Central DuPage Hospital Association) merged with Delnor Health System, the parent of Delnor Hospital of Geneva, Illinois, to form Cadence Health System.[7] Cadence, in turn, was then acquired by Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, parent of Chicago's Northwestern Memorial Hospital, in 2015.[8]
