For 30 years, Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital has been providing quality, compassionate health care, wellness programs and community outreach for its patients and communities. It is a leader in delivering the most advanced technologies and techniques available in the northwest suburbs.
The Center for Cancer Care is a two-time recipient of Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. Good Shepherd was one of the first six Illinois hospitals recognized with this prestigious award and one of 66 hospitals nationally receiving it.
Good Shepherd Hospital is one of a handful of Illinois hospitals to offer Intrabeam intraoperative radiotherapy for women with breast cancer as well as Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) for liver and pancreatic cancer patients.
They are also one of only a few sites in the region to offer the highly accurate tumor targeting treatment Rapid Arc Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) as well as Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT). The Cancer program was the first in the State of Illinois to deploy SAVI Brachytherapy for breast cancer patients – cutting down the Radiation treatment time from six weeks to just five days.
