Visiting Edward Hospital

Before your visit, please review our visitor guidelines.

Our goal is to make every moment you spend at Edward Hospital as comfortable and stress-free as possible. This mindset dates back to 1991, when Edward became the first hospital in Illinois to offer all private rooms. In the years since, we've introduced more innovations in comfort, like space for family to spend the night, peaceful healing gardens, and a pediatric ER designed with a fun nautical theme.


We want you to feel at home when you’re here. We offer several dining/shopping options and amenities:
