Northwestern Memorial Foundation raises funds that support the patient-centered care and strategic goals of Northwestern Medicine and its mission to provide the highest-quality health care to the patients and communities we are privileged to serve.
Northwestern Medicine is a growing, nationally recognized health system that provides world-class care in communities throughout Chicago and its surrounding suburbs. Our health system is anchored by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the No. 1 hospital in Illinois for 10 consecutive years as ranked by U.S. News and World Report, America’s Best Hospitals, 2021 – 2022. Our decade at the top reflects a shared commitment to excellence among the physicians and staff who provide exceptional care, and donors who continue to fuel better medicine.
Northwestern Medicine has 11 hospitals and more than 200 sites of care across eight counties in Northern Illinois. We are strengthened by the contributions of approximately 5,500 physicians and about 35,000 employees who work together to bring the best in medicine to our patients. Patients come from all 50 states as well as countries across the globe to access advanced care from the leading experts at Northwestern Medicine.
Each of our hospitals has a unique story, but our entire health system shares one mission: to put the patient first in everything we do.
