Building on a System of Care

A fully integrated healthcare system allows for easy migration of the latest research findings into the hospital, into ambulatory settings and even to the patient's home.

NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) is strengthened by the presence of the Research Institute.  And everyone associated with NorthShore shares the same mission,  "to preserve and improve human life".

A Growing Tradition of Philanthropy has been instrumental in shaping and supporting NorthShore's vision of world-class care.  Financial health is crucial to recruit and retain outstanding clinician-scientists, to provide them with space to work, and to support them with the latest technology.  Over the last nine years NorthShore has invested more than $115 million in research, including $45 million in direct internal support and $70 million in capital improvements.

Close Ties to Fortune 500 Health-Related Companies provide an excellent platform for corporate-sponsored research.

The Board of Directors of the NorthShore University HealthSystem Research Institute and NorthShore include many of Chicago's top corporate leaders.  These leaders have set new standards of generosity from the very beginning, and their support has been critical in enabling the Institute to thrive.
