Northwest Community Hospital

FOR 60 YEARS, WE’VE PUT COMMUNITY AT THE CENTER

Serving Chicago’s northwest suburbs since 1959, NCH is a not-for-profit healthcare system dedicated to providing outstanding care in the communities we call home. Our comprehensive, patient-centered system of care has dozens of locations throughout the area. Together, we serve more than 200,000 outpatients and treat more than 20,000 inpatients annually. Our hospital houses a Level III NICU, Level II Trauma Center and a dedicated pediatric emergency department.

In January 2021, we joined NorthShore University HealthSystem. Headquartered in Evanston, NorthShore is a fully integrated healthcare delivery system that includes 6 hospitals—Evanston, Glenbrook, Highland Park, Skokie, Swedish and now NCH. Together, the NorthShore system provides clinical excellence and community-focused care across Chicagoland.

Our award-winning care has been recognized on a national level. Some of our top awards include:

  • America’s 250 Best Hospitals™ Award for four years in a row from Healthgrades® (2017–2020)
  • Magnet® designation for nursing excellence, received consecutively since 2006
  • The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and Comprehensive Stroke Center designation

LEVELS OF CARE

No two patient visits are the same. That’s why we provide you with access to the right level of care at the right location for each visit. To ensure quality service for you and your loved ones, our system offers you a full range of treatment options based on your health needs.
