Evanston, an established residential community of approximately 75,000, has a stunning natural setting on Lake Michigan with unique business districts, attractive homes on tree-lined streets, and pleasant public parks. As a community, Evanston offers a wealth of cultural opportunities in a beautiful lakefront setting easily accessible to downtown Chicago, with six medical schools, active local medical societies, and a meeting place for national societies. Convenient and timely public transportation are provided by the Chicago Transit Authority (the “L”) and Metra (commuter trains), which run on frequent schedules between Chicago and the outlying areas. In addition, easy and convenient parking options make all of the professional and cultural facilities of the Chicagoland area readily available.
Evanston boasts a top rated education system with options to fit every child’s needs. All District 65 schools are held to the highest standards of scholarship and excellence and continue to foster success in all children. For younger children who are not old enough for school, day care facilities are conveniently located on the ground floor of the Graham Medical Building (Professional Building) adjacent to Evanston Hospital. This NorthShore-sponsored child care facility, managed by Bright Horizons (847.570.1490), is well known and used by many NorthShore University HealthSystem employees.
