2011 Saint Joseph Hospital Celebrity Invitational
On June 16, 2011, at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont, 200 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day on two courses and raised $182,000 to kick off the renovation of Saint Joseph Hospital's Emergency Department. This project will double the size of the current ED, while providing improved patient access and expanded waiting and triage areas.
Saint Joseph Hospital has an exceptional emergency medical staff, who maintain an average door-to-doctor patient waiting time of only 15 minutes. This $11 million project will have an immediate impact on emergency care in the community, and continued philanthropic support and partnership are paramount to its success.
