Vista Medical Center (East & West)

Vista Health is changing today to meet future healthcare needs in Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin. Vista Health is a network of two hospitals, Vista Medical Center East and Vista Medical Center West, a stand-alone same day surgery and treatment center, and several locations for imaging and patient therapy. Although our system has grown overtime, our two hospitals have been part of Lake County for almost 100 years. During 2005, Vista Medical Center East, located on the north shore of Lake Michigan in Waukegan, has been a center of advancement. Since the February opening of its second modern cardiac catheterization laboratory, twice as many patients have benefited from cardiac diagnostic and interventional procedures. Similarly, the opening of new endoscopy suites for colonoscopies and other gastrointestinal procedures has greatly increased the number of patients achieving better GI health due to diagnosis and treatment at Vista Medical Center East, Lake County’s only Five-Star designated hospital by HealthGrades“ for GI services.

As surrounding medical centers discontinued inpatient Behavioral Health Services, Vista Health System embraced its position as the sole service provider in Lake County at Vista Medical Center West. With sustained experience, our team of independent psychiatrists and psychologists, nurses and other care professionals have a unique understanding of how to help people of all ages manage personal crises. Vista Medical Center West is also the sole provider in Lake County for inpatient rehabilitation. Accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) signifies that Vista Healths ’s treatment programs meet rigorous internationally recognized standards for inpatient rehabilitation. Vista Health Medical Center West’s role in Lake County as a center specializing in inpatient Behavioral Health, inpatient Rehabilitation and Vista Health Corporate services was established in July of 2005 when all acute services were relocated to Vista Medical Center East.
