    Lilac Town Inspires A Healthy Lifestyle

     

    The Lilac Village inspires 43, 395 residents to live a healthy lifestyle in Du Page County, Illinois USA.

     

    Before 2003 and April 2005, the Lilac Village did not have a community hospital until the Elmhurst Memorial Lombard Health Center was built in Lilac Town.

     

    Nine (9) years ago, the Lilac Village residents had to drive more than 30 minutes to other accessible healthcare facilities outside of Lombard and in the surrounding areas for comparable quality healthcare, emergency services, and outpatient care in Du Page County, Illinois USA.

     

    Now, there is a more focused patient care service at the Elmhurst Memorial Lombard Health Care Center located in the historic District 1, at the corner of Main St. and Maple St., by Park Avenue, near the Metra commuter station and Lilacia Park, in the midst of the Lombard Downtown.

     

    Lombard Metra has added signs posted for a Suicide Toll-Free Telephone Line for commuters, after several suicides took place at the Metra station.

     

    Twenty-one (21) years ago, Lombard residents who purchased real estate property in the Lilac Village, did not have the same healthy inspiration nor the lifestyle since Lilac Town did not provide the same Health Care Centers or healthy amenities in Du Page County, Illinois USA.
