At NCH, we believe that when you need exceptional care, you shouldn’t have to go out of your way to get it. That’s why we’re constantly expanding our offerings and adding new locations in the northwest suburbs. We’re here to help you get better when you need to—and live better because you want to. When you need high quality healthcare close to home, Northwest Community Healthcare is here for you. NCH offers nationally recognized physicians, advanced technology, and inpatient and outpatient services for a full range of medical specialties. We're an award-winning hospital offering a complete system of care and we're honored to be recognized by top organizations, including the American Nurses Credentialing Center, American Stroke Association, The Joint Commission, College of American Pathologists and many others. We opened our doors on December 2, 1959– thanks to a multi-year effort led by a group of visionary civic and business leaders who saw the need for quality, community-focused healthcare in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. Today, we remain community focused – focused on your needs – the excellence and the convenience you look for, and the compassion that makes it clear: At NCH, you’re more than treated. You’re cared for.
