A Message from the Huntley Hospital Chief Nursing Executive

Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital recognizes that nurses are instrumental in creating a safe, compassionate and effective patient experience. The remarkable dedication and professionalism of our nurses supports nursing excellence and our desire and journey to become credentialed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, as a Magnet-designated hospital.

Our organization’s core values of excellence, integrity and teamwork support our mission of always placing “Patients First”. Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital's nursing professional practice model includes relationship-based care, which is the foundation our nurses stand on and supports their ability to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of every patient.

Northwestern Medicine nurses embody this care philosophy through a professional practice environment of evidence-based practice and research, innovation, education, autonomy and shared decision-making; as well as professional development, patient advocacy, volunteerism and quality improvement/patient safety initiatives. We believe every nurse is a leader and makes a difference in the lives of our patients, community and colleagues.

Our nurses have a tremendous role in caring for the health of our community and creating impact in the current and future state of our healthcare landscape. It is certainly an exciting time to be a nurse, and we look forward to the opportunities we have to enact change. If you are seeking a place where your ideas and expertise can help change the face of patient care, we would implore you to reach out to us about becoming a Northwestern Medicine nurse. We invite you to learn more about the nursing opportunities at Northwestern Medicine.

Northwestern Medicine thanks our nurses for the outstanding work and results they accomplish every day. It is an honor and privilege to work alongside all of them.
