Lake Forest Hospital (LFH) - is a fully licensed and accredited 215-bed community hospital situated on a 160-acre wooded campus offering a complete range of services. The medical staff includes more than 600 board-certified physicians and a skilled nursing staff to serve the patient's needs. Founded in 1899 as the Alice Home, LFH grew into a not-forprofit community hospital and continues to enjoy strong community support. LFH is governed by a board of directors comprised of members representing both the community and the medical staff.

The Lake Forest Hospital Foundation mission spans beyond the traditional full range of health-care services to incorporate a holistic approach through Lake Forest Hospital, Lake Forest and Lindenhurst Health & Fitness Centers, Dearhaven Child Care and Learning Center, Westmoreland Nursing Center and the Women's Auxiliary of Lake Forest Hospital.
 
Key LFH services include its emergency department (a Level II Trauma Center), women's health (including digital mammography) and cancer care, including Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), a groundbreaking cancer treatment that allows the delivery of more cancer-fighting energy at the tumors while minimizing radiation to healthy tissue.
 
A PET/CT system subsequently installed in 2004 provides physicians with more sensitivity, speed, resolution, and diagnostic confidence when treating cancer patients. The former radiation oncology department is now known as the Center for Advanced Radiation Medicine, to better reflect the level of treatment that cancer patients receive there.
 
Women's health services were consolidated under one roof when Lake Forest Hospital opened a major new addition in 2004. The Hunter Family Center for Women's Health is a $22-million women's wellness center featuring a breast care center, Waud Family Maternity Services, community education rooms and physicians' offices. The center features the Posy Krehbiel Prevention & Wellness Center, which captures the newest research and gathers all the right specialists to help any woman design a personal, sustainable plan for optimal well being.
 
Children's health has always been a focus of Lake Forest Hospital. As a continuation of this, pediatric patients and their families can take advantage of a partnership between Lake Forest Hospital and Children's Memorial Hospital. A pediatric hospitalist team, comprised of four physicians from Children's, is on staff at LFH at all times to provide care for children admitted to the newborn nursery, emergency room, inpatient unit and elsewhere in the hospital.
 
Lake Forest Hospital participates in major managed care programs serving Lake County giving patients the highest quality health care at an affordable cost. For more information about our physicians, please call the hospital's Physician Referral Service at (847) 535-6171.
