Hospital expands online scheduling

NEW LENOX – Silver Cross Hospital recently expanded its online scheduling capabilities so that patients can book an appointment in real time for several nuclear medicine tests at www.silvercross.org.

In addition, patients who need a mammogram and Dexa scan to screen for osteoporosis now can make one appointment for both tests using the hospital’s free SCHedule Now tool

Here’s how it works: Patients simply go to www.silvercross.org, click on the SCHedule NOW icon, and choose the outpatient service and preferred Silver Cross location. Patients then follow the prompts to schedule their appointment.

SCHedule NOW provides appointment reminders via email, as well as a link to a map for directions. Appointments can be made 24/7 from any internet-connected device, including smartphones and tablets.

Patients who schedule online receive appointment reminders via text and also have the ability to upload a photo or scan of the order from their physician to further expedite care.

However, patients no longer need an order for a screening mammogram.

Visit www.silvercross.org or call 815-300-7076 to schedule an appointment, an urgent care visit or one of the following outpatient services: CT, Dexa scan, EKG, lab, mammography, MRI, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and X-ray.
