Lake Forest Hospital

Lake Forest Hospital made a modest beginning in 1899 on the campus of Lake Forest College as Alice Home Hospital. The hospital was shifted to its current location, on the grounds of the former Dick family farm, in 1942. This 215-bed not-for- profit community hospital offers an unmatched continuum of healthcare services to the residents of Lake County. The hospital has more than 1,600 employees to serve patients' needs.

Initially governed by the three-member Hospital Association of Lake Forest, leadership has grown to include a 28-member board of directors with representatives from both the community and the medical staff. LFH is accredited by Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, Illinois Department of Public Health, and Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

Community education includes ongoing programs, support groups, immunizations, health education library and care coach.

Lake Forest Hospital accepts both Medicare and Medicaid patients.
