Suburban Chicago hospitals assigned new regional name

Starting April 1, AdventHealth’s four hospitals in suburban Chicago will be known collectively within the health system as AdventHealth Great Lakes Region.

On that date, the Bolingbrook, GlenOaks, Hinsdale and La Grange hospitals will exit AMITA Health, a joint operating company that AdventHealth and Ascension formed in 2015 but are now unwinding.

Thor Thordarson, president and chief executive officer of AdventHealth Great Lakes Region, said the new name will differentiate the region within AdventHealth’s Multi-State Division, which includes all of AdventHealth’s operations outside Florida. The name also aligns the region with the Lake Union division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, which includes the church’s Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Lake Region conferences.
