Chicago Lakeshore Hospital’s Intake Department works to ensure that the admission process is as easy as possible for our patients. Equally important is helping potential patients and families to feel comfortable and knowledgeable about the hospitalization process. We encourage you to call and speak to one of our Intake professionals about the programs and services that are offered by Vista del Mar Hospital and our sister hospitals. To begin the process, all you need to do is pick up the phone and call our Assessment and Referral Department. Someone is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to take your call.
