About Palos Community Hospital 

Palos Community Hospital has served the people of Chicago's southwest suburbs for 40 years. The health care we provide is guided by traditions established over the years - traditions of quality, respect and trust.

At Palos Community Hospital, we live by one simple philosophy: We treat people the way we would want our own family and friends to be treated. Our mission of compassionate care is founded in the rich heritage of the Sisters of the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph. The Sisters' dream, shared by community leaders, to build a hospital on 40 wooded acres in Palos Heights, became a reality on March 19, 1972, when the doors opened to those seeking care.

Today, in response to community need, Palos Community Hospital has flourished as a major health care provider with a responsive network of services, a network with a singleness of purpose to provide compassionate, quality care.

This is possible because of the dedicated and highly-skilled employees who make up Palos Community Hospital. We take great pride in the caliber of employees we recruit and retain. In every department and at every level, our employees work closely together, each with his or her unique talents, to serve our patients.

Concern for our patients is at the very core of every decision we make and each action we take. Our services are structured around two simple tenets: get people well and help them stay well. Our tradition of respect is reflected in many of our programs, designed to make life easier for both patients and their families.
