NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) is an integrated healthcare delivery system consistently ranked as a Top 15 Teaching Hospital in the U.S. The NorthShore system, headquartered in Evanston, Ill., includes four hospitals Evanston, Glenbrook, Highland Park and Skokie. NorthShore also includes a 900 physician multispecialty group practice, NorthShore Medical Group, with 130 locations in the Chicagoland area. NorthShore has annual revenues of $2.1 billion and employs 10,500 people. NorthShore is a Magnet-recognized organization, the first in Illinois to receive this prestigious honor as an entire system that demonstrates excellence in nursing and high standards in patient care. NorthShore also is a national leader in the implementation of innovative technologies, including an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system. In 2003, NorthShore was among the first in the country to successfully implement a systemwide EMR with demonstrable benefits in quality, safety, efficiency and service to patients. NorthShore has been recognized by multiple national organizations for this notable achievement. As the principal teaching affiliate for the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, NorthShore is dedicated to excellence in medical education and research. Combined with NorthShores established reputation for advanced information technology and its strong clinical environment, this affiliation represents an exciting advancement in patient care for the Chicagoland area. NorthShores health system includes significant capabilities in a wide spectrum of leading clinical programs, including Kellogg Cancer Center, NorthShore Neurological Institute, NorthShore Orthopaedic Institute, NorthShore Cardiovascular Institute, Center for Personalized Medicine and High-Risk Maternity. NorthShore Research Institute focuses on clinical and translational research, including leadership in clinical trials and medical informatics. NorthShore Foundation is the primary philanthropic entity of NorthShore. The Foundation raises charitable contributions and engages volunteers committed to friends in support of NorthShores ongoing mission to preserve and improve human life. Thanks to an ongoing relationship between NorthShore and Mayo Clinic, physicians from these two leading health systems are working together on the most complex medical cases. NorthShore physicians have direct access to Mayo Clinic physicians to collaborate on the best treatment plan for your clinical condition. This means most patients with hard to solve cases can benefit from enhanced care locally, and need travel outside the region only when necessary.
