About Our Program

NMHC is a growing, nationally recognized health system that provides access to world-class care at more than 100 locations, including its seven hospitals throughout Chicago, its North and West suburbs and Northern Illinois one patient at a time. The communities served by NMHC hospitals are complex and diverse, encompassing rural, suburban and urban areas, with a range of socio-economic statuses and the social determinants of health that correspond to these demographics. NMHC is committed to providing culturally competent care that is responsive to the needs of all our patients. NMHC works closely with community partners, including community health centers, to identify priority health concerns and jointly develop community-based health initiatives designed to address healthcare disparities.
