In addition to a large number of health care professionals at all levels of health and dental care, Skokie residents have access to a variety of medical specialists as well as primary, tertiary, outpatient and convenient care. In the heart of Skokie is NorthShore University HealthSystem Skokie Hospital, a full-service health care provider offering patients access to a vast network of resources. The hospital is in the midst of a phased, multi-year $300 million project to expand clinical services, enhance and improve patient care and upgrade technology. Expected to be completed in 2017, the project includes: A new Ambulatory Care Center (ACC), which opened in January 2013, expands access to clinical services and increases the complement of physicians on campus. Relocation of several outpatient services to the new ACC for ease of patient access. Conversion to all private patient rooms.
Reconfiguration of departments on the first floor to improve patient flow. Enhancements to the state-of-the-art surgical pavilion. Nation’s most advanced electronic medical records system.
