Community Services

Community Outreach

Our community is composed of people from all walks of life. Recognizing our role as a vital healthcare resource, we work hard to respond to the changing needs of everyone within it. Through information gathered from the Community Health Needs Assessment and a dedicated Community Services Department, we collaborate with local partners to develop and provide innovative programs to address the unique healthcare needs of the people we serve.

Some of our many programs include:

Mobile Dental Clinic

Providing preventive and restorative oral health services to individuals who have an income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level or are on General Assistance or Medicaid.

The Community Resource Center

Connecting those in need with agencies and organizations dedicated to meeting the needs of the under-resourced population of the northwest suburbs.

Community Health Worker

Providing free healthcare support services and referrals for Spanish-speaking patients and community members.

Community Nursing

Helping under-resourced individuals and older adults, who often have difficulty navigating the healthcare system.

Six Decades of Giving Back and Caring for Our Community

We consider it a privilege to care for all who live and work in the area. Community isn’t just part of our name—it’s at the core of who we are. In 2020, it was our pleasure to direct $32.2 million in programs and services that greatly benefited our community’s unique needs.

Additional Community Health Initiatives

In addition to community health initiatives developed in response to health concerns revealed in the Community Health Assessment, we also collaborate with community partners to provide the following programs:

Community Cares

Our collaborative effort with Palatine Assisting Through Hope (PATH) and All Saints Lutheran Church provides food and clothing to community members in need.

Domestic Violence 

Through a partnership with WINGS (Women in Need Growing Stronger), we’ve developed a hospital-based domestic violence program composed of individual and family counseling services, resources and referrals, education and emotional support.
