The University of Chicago Medicine, with a history dating back to 1927, is one of the nation’s leading academic health systems. It unites the missions of the University of Chicago Medical Center, Pritzker School of Medicine and the Biological Sciences Division. Twelve Nobel Prize winners in physiology or medicine have been affiliated with the University of Chicago Medicine. Its main Hyde Park campus is home to the Center for Care and Discovery, Bernard Mitchell Hospital, Comer Children’s Hospital and the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine. It also has ambulatory facilities in Orland Park and the South Loop as well as affiliations and partnerships that create a regional network of care. UChicago Medicine offers a full range of specialty-care services for adults and children through more than 40 institutes and centers including an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Together with Harvey-based Ingalls Memorial, UChicago Medicine has 1,286 licensed beds, nearly 1,300 attending physicians, about 3,200 nurses and over 1,100 residents and fellows.
Friend Health is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) providing services to over 37,000 patients on an annual basis. Although Friend Health has grown significantly, they remain true to their founding philosophy: to provide more medically underserved and low-income individuals and families access to high quality health services while alleviating disparities in health care outcomes.
At La Rabida Children’s Hospital, our patients aren’t like any other — and neither are we. The children we serve live with complex medical conditions, disabilities, abuse or trauma. At La Rabida, we’re in it for the long haul, and we’ve got Chicago’s most talented providers — pediatricians, nurses, physical, occupational, speech and developmental therapists — on our side. Between our outpatient and inpatient services, we are able to cover a range of disciplines beyond standard medical care: behavioral therapies, case management, social work, nutrition and rehabilitation services.
Charity, compassion and a commitment to quality guide St. Bernard Hospital’s mission to bring the best medical care to its patients. As a community hospital founded by the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph, St. Bernard Hospital has met the unique health care needs of Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood for more than a century.
