Ingalls Memorial Hospital is the only community hospital in the area and one of only a few in the country to be named one of "America's Best Hospitals" in the 13th annual edition of U.S. News and World Report - a distinction usually reserved for large university hospitals.
Many of the neurosurgeons on staff at Ingalls are members of the Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch (CINN), one of the largest and most actively practicing neurosurgery practices in the country.
Ingalls became one of the only hospitals in Illinois to offer this alternative treatment for epileptics who are unable to control seizures effectively with drug treatment or surgery.
