Overview

Community Programs

Together with community partners, Northwestern Memorial Hospital has focused on two primary strategies:

  • Identifying priority health concerns within the community and developing formal, comprehensive initiatives aimed at responding to these needs
  • Working together to systematically reduce barriers to patient care services, especially for low-income, medically underserved residents in the community

Over the last few years, we have developed models of care for the treatment of chronic disease that have a measurable, positive impact on the health of those who need it most.
