Innovations in Access: Breakthroughs Start Here

An Integrated System to Bring Breakthroughs to You

Every single one of our breakthroughs leads to you. And with the integration of Northwestern Medicine and Cadence Health, we’re increasing your access to the experts in academic medicine.

We now offer an expanded healthcare network, including more than 60 locations across the Chicago area, approximately 1,600 inpatient beds, 19,500 employees, and a medical staff comprised of 4,000 physicians.

In August 2014, Northwestern Medicine announced the integration of Cadence Health with Northwestern Medicine, expanding Northwestern Medicine to four hospitals, including Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital in Lake Forest, Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield and Delnor Hospital in Geneva.

Shared Vision, Serving You

With a similar vision and mission, Cadence Health was an ideal fit for the Northwestern Medicine family, said Dean M. Harrison, NMHC President and CEO. Sharing a commitment to accountable and accessible world-class medicine, Cadence Health and Northwestern Medicine combined to provide trusted, quality care anchored in first-rate research for the convenience of our communities in the western suburbs.

“As one integrated health system, we can not only continue to fulfill the health needs of our region,” added Mike Vivoda, NMHC Regional President, Western Region, “but use our collective strength as Northwestern Medicine to build stronger, healthier communities.”
