Leading the Way in Technology

Whether it’s the latest treatment, research breakthrough or pioneering use of a new procedure, 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 healthcare system in the western and southwestern suburbs to offer a Web portal, myLoyola, where patients can communicate with their caregivers, view their health history, appointments and preventive-care reminders and manage their account.


As a patient you have many choices, but we know it comes down to trust. Our high standards have won widespread recognition. U.S. News & World Report has placed Loyola in the top 1 percent of hospitals nationwide in four categories – including cardiology and heart surgery, which the magazine has recognized 12 years in a row. Our Trauma and Burn centers are verified Level I providers, and our advanced stroke, hypertension and heart attack care has earned national awards. In addition, Loyola has earned the Magnet designation for excellence in nursing and patient care. These achievements reflect our commitment to placing the patient at the center of everything we do. At Loyola, we don't just treat an illness or condition. We treat the whole person, mind, body and spirit.
