Your Hospital Stay
At Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, we are deeply committed to your health and wellness. We offer state-of-the-art facilities, and our physicians follow the latest advances in minimally invasive procedures and surgical diagnostics.
We also understand that surgery can produce anxiety, but rest assured that we take your care very seriously. Our anesthesiologists are expertly trained, and our nurses focus on your comfort before and after your surgery.
As you schedule and prepare for your surgery or that of your child, your physician and nurse will supply you with specific, detailed information to help you prepare for the procedure. The following general information will help guide you, but please direct any specific questions to your physician.
Many insurance plans now require pre-admission review or second opinions; therefore, it is very important for you to contact your carrier about your surgery before the day of your operation to ensure your coverage. If insurance carriers are not notified promptly, your surgery may be cancelled. If you are unable to pay the full deposit, financial arrangements should be made with the financial counselors before admission. Please call 847.535.7533 to discuss this matter.
Insurance companies do not normally cover elective procedures, such as cosmetic surgery. If this is the case or if you do not have insurance, you will be asked to pay in full based on the approximate cost of your procedure.
