The Loyola Advantage

Why Choose Loyola?   

At Loyola University Health System (Loyola), you are served by a Catholic Jesuit health-care provider committed to knowledge in the service of humanity, the promotion of health and healing of the mind, body and spirit. You receive treatment from primary care physicians, specialists and health-care professionals whose sense of compassion is as highly regarded as their expertise.

Quality Focus

When you choose Loyola, you entrust your care to a health-care institution nationally recognized for promoting patient safety above all else. Loyola has taken a leadership role in the health-care industry by adopting and promoting a culture of quality and safety, in which physicians communicate clearly with patients, risks are minimized, errors are reported and corrected and solutions take precedence over blame.

Easy Access

No matter where you live or work in the western suburbs of Chicago, there's a Loyola provider nearby. Loyola has an extensive network, including a 61-acre main medical center campus in Maywood, the 36-acre Gottlieb hospital campus in Melrose Park and 25 primary care (family medicine, internal medicine, internal medicine/pediatrics, obstetrics & gynecology and pediatrics) and specialty care facilities in Cook, Will and DuPage counties along with a number of complete outpatient and diagnostic centers. Nearly 600 Loyola physicians are available to meet your needs for primary and specialty care and other health services. Home care, rehabilitation, sub-acute care and other services also are vital parts of the Loyola family of health-care services.

Promising Research

When you choose Loyola, you reap the benefits of being at a teaching institution that translates groundbreaking research into new patient therapies, new treatments – new solutions – in burn, cancer, heart and vascular medicine, children’s services, neonatology, neurosciences, emergency medicine, organ transplantation, women’s services and many other areas. Working together with our patients, we can answer questions that will lead to medical breakthroughs and better health for the future.

Care Management

Continuity of care for each patient and effective care management mean that each patient receives not only individual, personalized care but also care that is based upon best practices. Loyola also is committed to operating as an efficient, cost-effective and responsive health-care provider.

Broad Coverage

Loyola facilities and physicians accept most insurance plans, including many HMO, PPO and POS plans and Medicare.

Leading the Way in Technology

Whether it’s the latest treatment or a research breakthrough, Loyola is always looking forward. As part of our mission to provide patients with the highest level of care, we have achieved some technological milestones. For instance, Loyola was the first health-care system in the western and southwestern suburbs to offer a Web portal, myLoyola Select, where patients can view their health history, appointments and preventive-care reminders. We were also the first to set up a secure e-mail so that patients could communicate with their doctors’ offices, eliminating phone tag. This is just one of our many technological advances.


As a patient you have many choices. But it really comes down to trust. Our high standards have won widespread recognition. The U.S. News & World Report has placed Loyola in the top 1 percent of hospitals nationwide in four categories. We also received the Magnet designation for excellence in nursing. We don't just treat an illness or condition. At Loyola we treat the whole person, mind, body and spirit.
