Jobs in Oak Lawn, Illinois, United States

The Village of Oak Lawn sits on the southwestern edge of the city of Chicago. Oak Lawn is well served by the major arterial highway Route 20, which runs through the village. Meanwhile Metra’s SouthWest Service provides regular train links direct from Oak Lawn to the city making the daily commute a simple journey of less than 40 minutes.

While its origins date from the middle of the 19th century Oak Lawn didn’t experience significant growth until the early years of the 20th century. The village benefited greatly from Roosevelt’s New Deal projects of the 1930’s, which, along with its proximity to Chicago, helped to make the village an attractive place to live.

Oak Lawn continued to grow steadily in the decades after World War Two. However significant damage was sustained in 1967 when a tornado struck the village. Around 900 buildings were damaged or destroyed and over 30 people were killed. In the aftermath Oak Lawn embarked on a significant rebuilding programme, which turned the village into a modern, urban community.

Oak Lawn is best known for its large community hospital, which serves the residents of Chicago and its suburbs. It is also a major employer in the area with many people working either as health professionals or in managerial positions connected to the industry. The Advocate Christ Medical Center recently expanded to include Hope Children’s Hospital. This is a state of the art trauma center that also provides advanced emergency medical care. The emergency department treats more patients than any other hospital in Illinois.

Away from the healthcare industry Oak Lawn is also known for it’s excellent educational provision. The area has a number of well regarded elementary and middle schools as well as the Oak Lawn Community High School and Harold L. Richards High School.

Oak Lawn Has Endless Delights

The Oak Lawn’s Children Museum is a popular destination providing hours of entertainment. Meanwhile the village also has a plentiful supply of restaurants catering to a variety of tastes. Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restauraunt, Palermo’s Italian Cuisine and Portillo’s, which serves traditional American food, are amongst the most popular.
