The 2013 merger of Elmhurst-based Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare and Naperville-based Edwards Hospital and Health Services laid the groundwork for the “Healthy Driven” institution recently renamed as Edward-Elmhurst Health.
The merger created one of the larger integrated health systems in the state comprised of three hospitals (Edwards, Elmhurst Memorial and Linden Oaks at Edwards) and more than 50 outpatient locations across a service area of 1.7 million residents. The system employs nearly 7,400 and has more than 1,900 physicians on staff.
Since late 2014, Roscoe native Danica Patrick, the most successful woman in the history of American auto racing, has served as the face of EEH’s Healthy Driven marketing campaign.
