NorthShore's 125th Anniversary


NorthShore's 125 Year Interactive Timeline

This is an exciting time for NorthShore as we celebrate the 125th anniversary of our founding as Evanston Emergency Hospital. We have come a long way from our humble beginnings as a tiny, six-bed hospital on Emerson St., but our long-standing mission ‘to preserve and improve human life’ has always been at the core of who we are and what we do. So please join us as we take a look back at our rich history. We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane!
