Mission Statement

Lake Forest Hospital is committed to providing the communities we serve the highest quality healthcare through exceptional access to state-of-the-art clinical services with compassionate and personal care.

Our History

The Lake Forest Hospital Legacy 

From its beginning in 1899 as the Alice Home Hospital on the campus of Lake Forest College, and continuing since 1942 in its present location on the grounds of the former Dick family farm, Lake Forest Hospital remains on the leading edge of medical technology and is committed to providing quality healthcare with a personal touch.

Over the past 116 years, and with the generous support of the community, Lake Forest Hospital has grown into a 201-bed not-for-profit community hospital offering an unmatched continuum of healthcare services. In addition to the medical office buildings on its main Lake Forest campus, Lake Forest Hospital offers healthcare services at its Grayslake campus and other convenient area facilities and anticipates continued growth in the future.

Initially governed by the three-member Hospital Association of Lake Forest, leadership has grown to a board of directors with representatives from both the community and the medical staff.
