Highland Park Hospital was established in 1918. It has provided healthcare to the people of Lake County and beyond for 100 years. In fact, Highland Park Hospital is the site of the first open heart surgery ever performed in Lake County and is a key partner in brining important healthcare programs to the area. Like Evanston Hospital, Glenbrook Hospital and Skokie Hospital, Highland Park Hospital is a teaching affiliate of the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. It is part of the NorthShore University HealthSystems.

Highland Park Hospital being part of the NorthShore University HealthSystems has the advantage of all types and varieties of medical specialties, including cardiovascular care, breast cancer care, nuclear medicine, mammography, radiology, labor and delivery, fertility, occupational health and a cancer center.

In 2014, Highland Park Hospital and NorthShore University HealthSystems asked the state permission to spend $74 million to modernize the hospital. Underlying that request was competition with nearby Lake Forest Hospital which is now part of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“We were devastated when our 31 year-old son was killed by a negligent driver. Kreisman Law Offices did everything to help us through this very difficult time, including coming out to the house several times which was a comfort. My wife and I were extremely pleased with Mr. Kreisman’s compassion and care for this very tragic and troubling time.” C.B.
★★★★★
“Bob Kreisman did everything possible in handling the trial of this case. It was devastating that I traumatically lost my leg above the knee in this truck accident. However, it was not an easy case to win. His staff was so prepared for the trial that it was not surprising that the settlement offers continued to rise until we finally accepted the multi-million settlement while the jury was still deciding the case. My wife and I were delighted that we could secure our future with this settlement. We thank Mr. Kreisman and his incredible staff for working so hard for our benefit.” T.P.
★★★★★
“My mother died because doctors dropped the ball. I called Robert Kreisman and he immediately set up an appointment for my entire family. We met at his offices and I was very comfortable that he would do the best for my dad and my brothers. He spent hours with all of us in preparing for depositions and he hired top notch experts, all of which contributed to an incredible settlement before trial. I know that he is dedicated to his cases and particularly to the people he works for and the people who work with him. He continues to be generous in contributing annually to my mother’s memory and to make known to the public the signs and symptoms of brain tumors.” V.S.
★★★★★
“My dad was ignored and mistreated at the nursing home that we placed him in. It didn’t take long for us to realize that we made a big mistake, particularly after my dad developed these terrible bedsores. We transferred him as we were contacting Mr. Kreisman. He was referred to us by a lawyer we have known for a long time and respect his opinion. Mr. Kreisman and his staff worked tirelessly to resolve this case. We were fortunate to have his services and will recommend him to anyone.” T.J.
