About Us

Modern advances have made it possible for an adult or child to have non-emergency surgery and return home the same day.  Established in 1974, Northwest Surgicare was the first ambulatory surgery center in Illinois and one of the first in the nation.  We are a multispecialty surgery center striving to provide high quality care at affordable costs and a convenient alternative to overnight hospitalization. This has earned us a reputation as a “Center of Excellence in Outpatient Surgery.”
